We have been incredibly lucky and honoured to have met extraordinary women while building Curtain Call here in the UK. We've been privileged to have worked with such powerful souls, including Uzo Aduba, Imelda Staunton, Noma Dumezweni, Gemma Chan, Helen McCrory who are all pictured in this gallery.
The list continues to those who work behind the scenes - Vicky Featherstone at the Royal Court; Casting Director Jessica Ronane; Producer Sonia Friedman; Designers Es Devlin, Bunny Christie and Vicki Mortimer; Directors Natalie Abrahami and Josie Rourke; Playwrights Caryl Churchill, Meera Syal and Carol Ann Duffy.
So to honour this in a small, but hopefully not insignificant way, the team here at Curtain Call thought we'd share a selection of some of our favourite photos of women theatre makers in backstage photos from our visits to the shows over the last few years.
