Join Us

To highlight the scope of new plays being written by women, and the range of professional theater being produced in the nation’s capital, many of the Washington, D.C. region’s professional theaters will join together to present the Women’s Voices Theater Festival.  Led by the area's premier theaters, including Arena Stage, Ford's Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre Company, Studio Theatre, Signature Theatre, Round House Theatre and Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company. These organizations will each present at least one new play by a female playwright between January 15 and February 15, 2018, along with special events, panels, and workshops to celebrate and support the work of women theater-makers.
