MELODY HONORED AS TRAILBLAZER!

We are honored to be receiving a special award from RHYTHMCOLOR Associates in their 3rd Annual "Evening in Appreciation of Trailblazing Women and Arts Instiutions". The event is on Sunday, April 29, 2018, from 5:00pm to 9:00pm (there are different attendance options). Along with four other NYC theatre women, Brooks is especially gratified to be acknowledged for NPTC's "ground-breaking contributions to the American and International Theater-Arts Scene." We hope friends and colleagues can join in the celebration!


SUFFRAGISTS FROM THE STAGE: PART 2

We have been working with the Heritage Program of the League of Professional Theatre Women for more than a year to recover the history of women in the theatre who were leaders in the Suffrage Movement. "Bloomers, Booze, Bicycles and the Ballot" looked at the big picture and focused on three specific actresses who have been left out of the suffrage story. We're back on MONDAY, APRIL 30 with a new piece, looking more closely at the Clubs and Organizations integral to the struggle, and adding information on African American Suffragists and propoganda plays.


WOMEN'S WORK MAY MINI-FEST

Join us May 20 - 23 for readings of new works being developed in the Women's Work Full-length LAB. Featuring plays and excerpts from Ann Chamberlin, Charlotte Colavin, Jennie Contuzzi, Joan Castagnone, Cara Hall and Alisa Zhulina. Director/dramaturgs Celia Braxton, Melody Brooks, Teresa Fischer, and Melissa Skirboll are sheparding the next batch of scripts to the same high standards of the Barbour Award finalists and other award-winning plays that have come out of the Women's Work Project over the last 24 years!

 

ALEXIS ROBLAN WINS BARBOUR AWARD!

We are pleased to announce that Alexis Roblan has been selected to receive the Barbour Playwrights Award and the $500 prize that comes with it. Congratulations to finalists Sandra Daley-Sharif and Teresa Lotz whose scripts were also in the running.


GET INVOLVED FOR OUR 27th BIRTHDAY!

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Fans! Our 26th Season (yes, 26 years!) began last August with the most successful Women's Work Short Play Festival ever! The 5th Season of ON HER SHOULDERS kicked off n September. Women's Work was selected for the Barbour Playwrighting Award in March, and we made our 3rd trip to Bogotá, Colombia with plays from Women's Work. As we count down to our 27th Birthday, we are looking for Volunteers, Board members and SUSTAINING DONORS!


WE WERE A HIT AGAIN IN BOGOTÁ!

Our whirlwind trip to the Alternative Theatre Festival was a great success, and we once again enjoyed tremendously positive feedback from audiences and festival participants alike. Festival director, the legendary Patricia Ariza commented on the importance of our showcasing plays by women, as this is an emerging phenomenon in Colombia. THANKS TO ALL WHO DONATED TO HELP MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO MAKE THE TRIP!
