Works by Women

Supporting creative work by women

On the Boards

WORKS BY WOMEN organizes groups to see theatrical pieces written, directed and/or designed by women six times a month.   Our goals include growing the group in order to see all the shows we possibly can.  Until then, we will highlight shows we are unable to attend as a group on our blog.  Here are a few to check out.
