Women in Theatre Festival

Jun 4, 2018

Women in Theatre Festival (#WiTFESTNYC) is dedicated to commissioning, developing, and producing the work of women playwrights. This years festival includes new works by many women-led theatre companies and theatre leaders. With a commitment to going #BeyondParity, the majority of roles  both on-stage and behind the scenes  are filled by women. By supporting work written by women and plays that feature large numbers of roles for women actors, Women in Theatre Festival is producing work that both reflects and responds to our time.
