Do you have any ideas for companies or productions to approach? We want to connect with theatermakers, share our work, and fill the house to deliver the message, “It Pays to Produce Plays by Women!”
THANKS! to those of you who joined us in 2013/14 for Tactical Reads, produced by The Vagrancy, to Atwater Crossing for kicking the program off, and to Rogue Machine Theatre, Son of Semele Ensemble, The Working Stage, Park La Brea, studio/stage & Theatre Asylum for giving shelter.
