Every year, it gets harder and harder to select a final line-up. Maybe it’s the fact that this year’s theme drew such a wild variety of work that I feel like – were the opportunity there – I could have done two weekends with two different festival line-ups and both would have freakin’ ROCKED!
But – although we’ve grown – we haven’t unlocked two-weekend status yet.
So I had the difficult, but beautiful challenge, of creating one final and winning line-up.
I’ve got to say, it’s going to be a kick-ass evening of work! Please scroll down to see our official selections for the 2017 Female Playwrights ONSTAGE Festival: Hot Mess. We hope you’ll join us July 6th – 8th in Prescott, AZ for this new play event. Our non-profit this year is Days For Girls, with a portion of proceeds benefiting this most excellent and necessary organization – so you can have an awesome time, while also doing some good, which is really all kinds of fantastic!
