Kick Ass Plays by Bad Ass Women Reading Series was a bi-monthly series running the entire year of 2010 featuring new plays in development by New York City women playwrights. Writers included Jessica Dickey (The Amish Project), Callie Kimball, Karen Zippler, and Lia Romeo.
“So many women… so little time…”
“There were so many plays sitting in my “Kickass Plays” folder, and I realized most of them were by totally amazing women writers at the start of their playwright careers. We created our first reading series in order to jump start our development of new work by these many talented and prolific women playwrights. This series supported and celebrated the badass women who write unconventional plays with strong, women characters. After each one (all held in bars) the audience would grab a drink and hang out and talk to the writer and actors – thus organically the uniquely informal tone of these “half social/half theatre” events was solidified.
