Rover Dramawerks presents 365 Women A Year Festival
Rover Dramawerks will partner with the playwrights’ group 365 Women A Year to present the first festival of plays written in 2014 in Texas. This international playwriting coalition, founded by Jesslynn Eisenberg Chamblee, involves over 200 women (and men) across the world who have signed on to write one or more one-acts about extraordinary women in both past and present history.
The project’s ambitious yet focused goal is to write women back into the social consciousness, as well as empower and promote female playwrights, and plant seeds of herstory around the country. Ten staged readings and performances from Texas playwrights will take place March 19-22.
Plays range from long monologues to large casts and take place from 400 A.D. to present day and everywhere in between. They will range in length from about 10 minutes to about an hour.
