Our website is updated frequently. See our listing of qualifying productions. Visit often and be sure to tell friends and colleagues about Works by Women!

If your production (no readings, free events) has a creative team (writers, directors, designers) of at least 50% women and has a run of at least two weeks in a New York City venue, we would love to include it and maybe even bring our group to see it!

Friday, June 13 at 7:00PM: When January Feels Like Summer

Ensemble Studio Theatre
549 W. 52nd Street
RSVPs close June 5, 12PM

Presided over by the Hindu god Ganesh, a pair of teenagers become unexpected heroes, an immigrant accountant struggles with visibility, and two stifled romantics begin to stumble toward each other during one strangely warm winter in Central Harlem. When January Feels Like Summer follows five colliding lives as a feeling of change hums in the air and the many flavors of desire saturate the streets and subways and bodegas of the city. These characters learn to do more than meet their obstacles head-on -- they discover how to transcend them.

"The New York Times posed this question on April 29 when the Tony nominations were announced. It's a problem that's getting long in the tooth; for years we've known that over 60 percent of the ticket buyers and "butts in seats" are women, and yet less than 20 percent of the stories staged are written, directed or designed by them. Hmm...."


In the MEMBER CORNER, members of Works by Women can share productions they are working on which feature many women artists, but either have a run of less than 2 weeks or do not meet the 50/50 writer, director, design team Works by Women requires. If you would like your project to be included please email info@worksbywomen.org with the subject "Member Corner and Title of Your Show"

Thanksgiving by Amy Hargreaves and directed by WBW Member Alexa Kelly!

10170813_446273828850718_1404518256103803257_n 2FAB--a group of women playwrights writing plays FOR AND ABOU T WOMEN. Directed by women, and featuring women in them.

Thanksgiving features 4 women. It is about 2 women who are involved with the same man, their confrontation, and surprise at the story that unfolds. The mothers of the 2 women are also featured as a more expansive view of women's roles in the past.

We have the power to effect change. Share our initiative by forwarding this email to your friends (use the link below or simply forward from your mail client). Share our social media pages and support shows that support women theatre artists!
