Curated by Catherine Blake Smith
August 4 – August 19, Tues-Wed at 8 pm
Opening Night: August 4

Women are 51% of the population, but women playwrights write less than 15% of the productions on Broadway. That won’t change overnight, but here’s a start: Six playwrights-all young, all female-collaborate on an evening of short works. Each is playwright of one play, director for another, and an outside eye for a third. The ensemble cast performs in all six plays about a range of topics such as ghosts of ex-lovers, comedic nightmares, and an absurdly honest job interview.

*** Please note that not all the plays show every night. The schedule is as follows:


Job Search written by Dayana "Dayo" Anderson, directed by Courtney Meaker
