Now, join us on Saturday, May 26 for our #HFF18 Fringe Femmes Gathering @ Sam French!
We’ll bring the “Women on the Fringe” together before the wonderful madness of the Hollywood Fringe Festival begins, to chat and connect, eat and drink, and introduce “Fringe Femmes” (artists working on projects written or helmed by women or theatermakers identifying as female) to one another and to other hard-working artists and audiences in Los Angeles. And, as always, we’ll have fun with our Micro-Reads…

Thanks to Joyce Mehess and crew for opening up the bookshop’s fabulous Green Room for food, wine, connections and Micro-Reads.
So wonderful to begin what we hope will be many LA FPI Nights the Geffen in February, 2018 with IRONBOUND by Martyna Majok, directed by Tyne Rafaeli.
It was terrific to bring together women playwrights, women directors and audience members before the show, enjoy the performance then stay for a talkback with the show’s arstists.
We were proud to be East West Players’ Community Partner in 2016 for their production of Leah Nanako Winkler’s KENTUCKY, directed by Deena Selenow; LA FPI Night at EWP included a fab female playwright/director mixer.
And we had a blast in 2015 at our LA FPI Nights at Pasadena Playhouse, bringing together groups of up to 77 for Vanessa Claire Stewart’s STONEFACE, Diana Son’s TOP KISS & REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES by Josefina López. Thanks so much to Seema Sueko and her crew for making these happen.
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.
Got ideas and energy to spearhead something new in terms of Events? We’re here to help you make it happen!
Check out some familiar faces at Tactical Reads and LA FPI Events…
(No, it’s not a secret! If you ask nicely, we’ll tell you all about our candle-lit – and wine-infused! – Outreach & Planning Meeting in January, 2011.) Great energy, ladies, and thanks so much to 55 Degree Wine in Atwater Village! Thanks to all of you who joined us for the 4th LA FPI Gathering in October, 2010 and to Rogue Machine for hosting!
