"Maybe she just doesn’t wanna be found, maybe that last day she felt freedom was when she ran, and she just didn’t stop, maybe that was it. "


Somalia Seaton’s Red is an unflinching and bold exploration of the internal lives of young women. It is part of Platform, an initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books, aimed at addressing gender imbalance in theatre. Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly or all-female casts, written specifically for performance by young actors.


"Complex, topical and rich in emotion… Seaton's writing fizzes off the page. Her characters are strong, complex and vibrant, her themes solid and resonant and she has delivered a foundation on which girls can finally flourish. " —Ink Pellet

"Has a subtle, yet accessible writing style that provides ample opportunities for a young ensemble to explore, ask questions, and push their performance skills… the action is lively and energetic, the dialogue well-paced – jumping between characters with a refreshing, playful energy. " —Teaching Drama
