We currently meet quarterly for LA FPI Gatherings (+ Micro-Reads!) at the Samuel French Bookshop, help organize LA FPI Nights at the theater (which may include Micro-Reads) and have other plans up our collective sleeves.
Thanks to all of you who joined us on May 30th for our terrific Fringe Femmes Gathering at Samuel French. It was an amazing #HFF15, with over 46% of the scripted shows created by women playwrights. Thru early August, you can still catch some of the Women (Still) on the Fringe!
Mark your calendars for our next LA FPI Gathering on Saturday, August 15th, 1-4pm. We’ve got fall events and fun possibilities in the works!
- Snacks and/or drinks to share
- Questions and ideas to scheme
- 1 page of your writing to be read aloud as a Micro-Read (if you’re a female writer!)

Thanks to Joyce Mehess and crew for opening up the bookshop’s fabulous Green Room for food, wine, connections and Micro-Reads.
And we had a blast at the July 11th “Outside the Lines”~2015 Female Playwrights ONSTAGE Readings! So happy to support the work of 12 women playwrights (and a few women directors, too!) along with our partners at Little Black Dress, INK
Our last LA FPI Night at The Pasadena Playhouse:
STOP KISS by Diana Son, directed by Seema Sueko, on Friday, November 14th!
Was terrific to see the amazing play with a group of 45, followed by drinks, mingling + Micro-Reads with Playhouse artists and WORKROOM actors. (Check out the Photos Here)
We had a blast at our first LA FPI Night at The Pasadena Playhouse on June 13th, getting a group of 77 together for Vanessa Claire Stewart’s STONEFACE.
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 past LA FPI Events.
Cheers to those of you who joined us for LA FPI’s first “BYO Mix” Mixer.
And a big thank you to NoHo’s Eclectic Company Theatre for hosting.
Many thanks to instigators who helped us move forward at our Spring Gathering in May, 2011 and to the very FPI-friendly Theatricum Botanicum for hosting.
(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 at Theatre/Theater for graciously hosting.
