Project Y Theatre Company is pleased to announced our 1st Annual

WOMEN IN THEATRE FESTIVAL (WIT)

Three Weeks of Performances, Readings, Workshops, and Projects in NYC in 2016

with dates in JUNE at Under St. Marks, ART/NY Studios (in Manhattan and Brooklyn)
and
in JULY  at Theatre Row, in the Studio Theatre

Women in Theatre Festival (WIT) is a curated three-week festival of new plays, readings, and innovative performances by diverse women artists. Performances will take place in New York City in June and July 2016. Projects have been chosen by invitation and include full productions, genre-bending theatre works, devised pieces, and readings. All writers are women and all projects are led by women.  We have at least 50% Women in all roles of the festival including actors, directors, producers, designers, and technical staff.

In a direct response to gender disparity in theatre leadership, casting, and production, the objective of WIT is to broaden the opportunities for women artists, engage with an audience who seek an indie theatre experience, and add to the canon of women playwrights writing roles for women actors. To this end, WIT has staged new works by women writers to be presented at the festival, and will ensure that emerging, mid-career, and established women artists are represented.

Featured Projects include the NY Premiere of EM Lewis’ searing new play, “The Gun Show,” directed by Shelley Butler, and Lia Romeo’s dark comedy, “Baby Boom,” directed by Project Y Co-Artistic Director, Michole Biancosino, two plays about guns and violence.   Featured theatre leaders of theatre companies include works by leaders of Elephant Run District, NY Madness, Shaggaes Song, Brooklyn Generator, and Open Booth Theatre.
