Announcing our 2018 ONSTAGE Semi-Finalists!

Wowzers… The 2018 Female Playwrights ONSTAGE Festival: Volume Control line-up is super awesome!   We have a few familiar faces, but also a whole lot of new names, and even a few out-of-country playwrights on the list!  The quality of work this year is seriously impressive, and I know our Partner Producers are going to have a heck of time trying to narrow down which pieces they’ll present at their readings this Spring!

Speaking of Partner Producers, the next stage of our exciting 2018 ONSTAGE Festival will see readings of plays below at various locations across the country – some of which will be happening on International Women’s Voices Day in connection with Women’s Theatre Voices Festival.

We’ll post more about our Partner Producers soon, but till we do, please help the FABULOUS Female Playwrights below celebrate their awesome work with all the shout out and and high-cyber-fives you can muster!  #FemalePlaywrightsROCK!
