WIT: International Edition, “WOMEN TOGETHER ACROSS THE GLOBE”
This WIT magazine edition focuses on innovative theatre women who create, produce, and/or perform work that gives voice and substance to issues affecting women in different parts of the world. With the exception of international festivals, we in the United States may not be fully aware of the breadth and magnitude of international theatre being created by women. We believe that this magazine issue provides a unique perspective of the astounding range of opportunities women theatre professionals have to collaborate, recognize and support one another around the globe. This edition is the first magazine to celebrate theatre women across the world. Carolyn Balducci, Editor in Chief
