The Evening Standard Theatre Awards shortlist was revealed with two cast members from The Ferryman among those nominated.

Laura Donnelly has been nominated for Best Actress and Tom Glynn-Carney for the Emerging Talent Award.

Curtain Call paid a visit to The Ferryman when it was on at The Royal Court, just as they announced their transfer to The Gielgud in London's West End.

We have seen a recent spate of high profile actresses making acceptance speeches at awards nights - highlighting the unequal representation of actresses on stage and screen and the need to redress the balance. It kicked off in earnest with Denise Gough at the 2017 Olivier Awards, actor Jimmy Nesbit even chipped in at the BAFTA TV awards, and is continuing as witnessed by Deirdre Mullins’ speech after picking up a Best Actress in Film award at the Scottish BAFTA’s. 

I had the opportunity to sit down at the National Theatre a couple weeks ago, who have just announced themselves that there will be equal representation gender balance on stage by 2021, with two Equal Representation for Actresses members, advocates and campaigners Polly Kemp and Jennie Matthews.
