The winners honored at this evenings event are: Rosemary Squire, Donmar Warehouse's all-female Shakespeare Trilogy, Emma Rice, Indhu Rubasingham, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, Dawn Walton, Jenny Sealey, Anna Newell and Paula Constable.

Lucy Kerbel Director of Tonic said, "I am thrilled that our inaugural Tonic Awards have so warmly embraced by the industry. There is clearly a great desire for the contributions women are making to theatre to be recognised more widely and for them to be rightly celebrated for their achievements. I'm delighted that the Tonic Awards can form just part of this."

Chair of Tonic's Board of Trustees Sita McIntosh commented, "Tonight was the culmination of months of planning and I am delighted by the positive response and feedback that we have had from awardees, presenters, guests and the industry in general. The overall sentiment has been that recognition of these (and many other women in UK theatre) is long overdue. I look forward to the 2018 Awards to continue championing gender equality on and off stage."
