Festivals and Theatres for Women Playwrights

Some women playwrights might say “Women’s work is never done.” In fact, of all the scripts being produced in the US, fewer than 20% are written by women.

There are several theatres and festivals in the US that specialize in women’s work. Here are some of them:
