THE DARK LADY RISES!

Join us for a weekend (April 11-13, 2014) of revolutionary performances and conversations by the Dark Lady Players celebrating Amelia Bassano Lanier, the first woman in England to publish a book of original poetry—and the TRUE author of the works attributed to William Shakespeare! Featuring presentations by Melody Brooks, Jenny Greeman and John Hudson, with members from both companies!


ON HER SHOULDERS!

We are pleaed to announce the second season of ON HER SHOULDERS, continuing our association with The New School for Drama. The Convent of Pleasure written by Margaret Cavendish and published in 1668. Is this a lost feminist classic, or is the play's debate surrounding the natural law of the sexes its raison d'être? Friday, March 28, 2014, at New School, 65 West 11th Street. Doors open at 6:30pm. As always, its FREE!


WELCOME 2014 WOMEN'S WORK MEMBERS!

We are delighted to announce the 2014  members of the Women's Work Short Play LAB, who have already been tasked with the theme of ON THE MARGIN to write their short plays. Six new works will be produced in our Annual Women's Work Short Play Festival, August 4-10, 2014!  We also welcome 3 new directors, and are looking forward to some spirited group sessions—if our kick-off LAB is any indication!


SEASON 22: AN EXCEPTIONAL YEAR!

Numerology says "Exceptional Projects Possible" for 22, and we have planned one of our busiest seasons in a long while!  In addition to 4 programs of new works by a very diverse group of playwrights, we are continuing to co-produce ON HER SHOULDERS in association with the New School for Drama, and will be looking to add back some of our other programs that have been on hiatus for the recent past.
