The Women in Theatre Festival seeks to broaden the opportunities for women in the entertainment industry by producing new work by women with more than 50% female representation of all artists involved.


Originally we had planned on launching our 7th season January 5th-January 9th 2022 at A.R.T./NewYork Theatres 
(503 West 53rd street) in The Gural Theatre.

But..... COVID hit again.
We are planning to shoot our plays during this same time period in NYC. 
We will then release these plays online as streaming content.

PLEASE CONSIDER BUYING A STREAMING PASS NOW 
to support Project Y's women-centered work and the artists who are working to put it up for you.

Programming includes:


HYBRID 2-HANDERS

 

Embracing the new era of theatre-making, Project Y has commissioned 5 talented women playwrights to create short plays for a hybrid theatre.  Playwrights Eliza Bent, Kaaron Briscoe, Georgina Escobar, Amina Henry, and Erin Mallon were asked to write plays that invite in an audience of simultaneously streaming and in-person audiences.  The other requirement - that they be "2 Handers" -  in theatre lingo this means having a cast of just 2 actors.  Be the first to experience these new hybrid works, ranging from the serious to the comedic to the intense, all experimental as we take the lead in figuring out this brave new world of theatre in a post-pandemic city. 


The Hybrid 2-Handers Plays:


Blackbox, by Amina Henry

#GirlPowerHour, by Kaaron Briscoe

Middle C, by Erin Mallon

Rigged, by Georgina Escobar

In Service of Memory, by Eliza Bent


The company of Actors includes: Timiki Salinas, Starr Kirkland, Joachim Boyle, Natalie Nankervis, Erin deWard, Emily Ma, Yadira De La Riva.

Directed by Michole Biancosino & Andrew W. Smith
