THE WORK GOES ON! A Women's Work Sampler

As part of our 25th Anniversary Season, we are delighted to revisit some of the short plays that have been created in NPTC's unique and effective Women's WorkShort Play LAB over the years. Since 2008 we have developed and produced 37 scripts from scratch, each running 15-30 minutes. Many of these have gone on to be produced in short play festivals around the country. Now, we are bringing them back home for a fresh look!


with 6 plays in Feb/March and 6 more in May!

PART ONE: February 23 to March 13, 2016

Playing hooky always has consequences, but two teenage girls learn the hard way about why they shouldn't talk to strangers.

Two Southern sisters—one “passing” and the other about to risk her life for change—confront the realities of the color bar in 1964.

God Don’t Exist for Girls From Brooklyn
by Yani Peréz, directed by Melody Brooks

How long can belief sustain you, in the face of another's despair? For two young sisters, the question is not academic.

The Bowl

by Teresa Lotz

directed by Jenny Greeman

In this absurdist gem, a group of disparate souls seek answers to life's BIG questions. Working together, they can change the world!

"Ever See a Fat Chinese?"

by Christine Toy Johnson

directed by Tiffany Greene
