When her best friend Jay goes missing, Dee withdraws into a twilight world of fragmented memories and conversations, shattered by her grief. Where should she look for Jay? What did she miss? What did Jay say? And what couldn't she say?

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.

"I urge you to explore all the NHB, Tonic Platform Plays. When it comes to giving more opportunities for girls onstage these plays could provide the platform to get there." --Ink Pellet

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