Join International Women's Artist Salon for their fourth annual homage to inspirational women on Sunday March 8th, International Women's Day.

Monologues, poems and even songs from countries from Albania to Zambia will pay tribute to the legacy of cultural riches created by women around the world and sustained today by the women and the city of New York.

Working with The OPTimistiks theatre collective, The International Women Artists' Salon looks forward to its second collaboration with the League of Professional Theatre Women and their international committee as well as dozens of other independent artists, from all disciplines.

The Great Room at ART New York's South Oxford Space is the venue for the event from 4-6pm on Sunday March 8th for all who are inspired by women artists from history and the here and now!

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Crimes of the Heart, comes the breathtaking tall tale of Bess and Macon, two mail-order brides lured to the plains of Wyoming by the promise of new beginnings. Beth Henley's fierce and funny adventure spans a 25 year friendship as wild and unpredictable as the untamed West itself, unearthing along the way, the dark underside of American mythology and the unbreakable bonds of female friendship.

There is a new immersive realm for the senses online, a virtual playground where those who plug in are coaxed into acting out their darkest fantasies--with no consequences in the "real" world. Or so it seems... until a young female detective begins an investigation to determine if there is a point at which thought or intention may actually constitute a crime within--and outside of--this new frontier.

Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, Jennifer Haley's The Nether is a haunting thriller that will make you question when the fantastic becomes too real.


USE CODE "NETHERCP" FOR $39-$49 TICKETS (USUALLY $69-$75)

Can there be laughter in the healing process? The lives of survivors, perpetrators, and bystanders weave together in a wickedly funny and piercingly insightful one woman show about a community trying to heal after a sexual assault. In Post Traumatic Super Delightful (PTSD), the personal is political, the political is personal. And the person is a clown.
USE CODE "yesmeansyes" FOR $8 TICKETS (USUALLY $16)

Free to the public 

At an auction in rural Georgia is a trunk filled with items from the closure of Alchemy Antiques; the bidding escalates to thousands of dollars and leads to a reclusive collector living in New York who claims to have cheated death. 


MTWorks celebrates today's innovative playwrights who boldly take risks in theme, structure, time-period, location and diversity (ethnic, economic, geographic, gender, sexuality or creed). MTWorks' mainstage productions are selected from the NewBorn Festival winners. 

Suggest a Show

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!
