RE-DISCOVERING MAY MILLER

ON HER SHOULDERS staged reading series is pleased to offer two short plays and poetry by MAY MILLER, one of the most widely published of the female Harlem Renaissance writers. Directed by Mary E. Hodges, join us at 6:45pm at Wollman Hall at the New School on March 8th for a "Play in Context" introduction offered by dramaturg Sandra A. Daley-Sharif, followed by the readings, then some wine and snacks during an audience Q&A. And SAVE THE DATE for April 3rd, 4:00pm to 7:30pm, for a VERY SPECIAL OHS event!


OUR $10 DONOR CAMPAIGN IS BACK!

For the last few years, we have worked to get 1,000 people to donate just $10--our own crowd-funded project without paying fees. That's less than 1% of all New Yorkers, and the $10,000 raised covers 70% of our costs through the end of the fiscal year! We are very frugal at NPTC, and supported by many volunteers and in-kind donations. Yet we do a LOT with very little. Click the link above to find out what's on the boards for the next few months! DONATE VIA PAY PAL LINK TO THE RIGHT!


MEET THE 2017 SHORT PLAY LAB MEMBERS

We are pleased to announce the 2017 Women's Work Short Play LAB members: six writers selected from among 60 applications, and four directors who will be joining the dramaturgical team. The first meeting is February 12th, and writers will be creating 15-30 minute original scripts, which will be showcased in the WW Short Play Festival, August 7-12, 2017.


APRIL MINI-FEST OF FULL-LENGTH PLAYS

Get the inside scoop on three new plays from the Women's Work Full-length LAB. From April 17-20, join us for readings of new scripts by Joan Castagnone, Charlotte Colavin, and Teresa Lotz, as well as a reading from the archive of Michele Miller's MOTHER OF GOD! (Princess Grace Foundation Finalist). The Full-length LAB is committed to bringing plays to production quality, and periodic public presentations are a vital part of the process. After each reading, stay for some Libation and a feedback session.


PEOLA'S PASSING GETS ENCORE PERF FEB 21

Cynthia Robinson's provocative play PEOLA'S PASSING, created in the Women's Work Short Play LAB back in 2011, remains distressingly relevant six years later. Set in 1964, it was one of two plays that we took to the Festival Alternativo in Bogotá last year, and now students at Westchester Community College will get a chance to see and discuss this script--in an equally turbulent time.
