LA Broads: a staged reading festival by Los Angeles based female playwrights

Sat, Oct 14th 8:00 pm & Sun, Oct 15th 2:00 pm

Broads’ Word Ensemble, in partnership with the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative, presents LA Broads: a staged reading festival of original 15-minute plays and short excerpts of original full-length scripts from Los Angeles based female playwrights. Each play is partnered with a female director to tell a woman’s story with at least 50% female cast.  Join us for an evening of perseverance, recovery, and unconventional podcasts as we explore the roles women play in their own stories. Stories that range from dramas about difficult choices regarding bringing a child into the world and struggles over honoring the memory of loved ones to comedies involving a time traveler who can change a tire and the tension of family secrets revealed.

Directors — including Elkin Antoniou, Lesley Asistio, June Carryl, Gloria Iseli, Rachel Manheimer, Rasika Mathur, and Desiree York — will present pieces by playwrights Nayna Agrawal, Tiffany Cascio, Allie Costa, Aja Houston, Uma Incrocci, and Starina Johnson. Broads’ Word Ensemble’s Executive Director Tara Donovan serves as producer. The production team is rounded out by Broads’ Management Team: Danielle Ozymandias, Artistic Director; Sylvia Loehndorf, Managing Director; Dana DeRuyck, Social Media Director; Lacy Altwine, Literary Manager. Sound Design by Suze Campagna with Heatherlynn Gonzalez as Stage Manager.
