Rover Dramawerks presents 2019 Women's Play Festival
For the fifth straight year, Rover Dramawerks will partner with the playwrights’ group 365 Women a Year to present a festival of plays about women, for everyone. This international playwriting coalition, founded by Jess Eisenberg, involves playwrights across the world who have signed on to write one or more plays 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.
Plays range from monologues to longer one-acts and cover the last 800 years to present day and everywhere in between. Returning playwrights include Carol M. Rice, Jess Eisenberg, Allie Costa, Jennifer O’Grady, Susan Shafer, and J. Thalia Cunningham.
