Women At Play(s) is currently looking for female directors, emerging or established, for its fourth festival. This annual event has had very successful runs in the last 3 years with sold out shows and great reviews from audience members and critics.
Women At Play(s) provides a creative outlet for female playwrights, directors and actresses. It was created to give women a voice. It is meant to inspire and showcase artistic achievements in theatrical performance for women.
Women At Play(s) 3 was proud to have all original plays by female playwrights who all happened to be from Vancouver. 6 short one acts were selected from 55 submissions from across Canada and the United States. The plays ranged from dramatic to comedic and had issues dealing with religion, reconciliation, pregnancy, motherhood, death, & life. Women At Play(s) 4 will have original plays selected from 209 submissions from Canada, US, Russia, UK, and South Africa.
All characters are female and the plays no longer than 20 minutes in length. Please note it is produced as an Equity Co-op. Performances will be January 2-10, 2009 at the Jericho Arts Centre.
Submissions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please submit resume before August 15, 2008.
