Supporting creative work by women
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.
