November shows

Works by Women has an awesome slate of shows to see this November.  Why don’t you join us for one of them and show your support for women’s theatrical work?  Membership in our Meetup.com group is free, and we often get great discounts to shows.

Plus, Works by Women offers the opportunity to be exposed to work that you may not be on your radar and to meet other amazing theater goers.

Here’s a list of upcoming shows:

EDGEWISE
by Eliza Clark

War sucks.

Flipping burgers sucks harder.

In new playwright Eliza Clark’s suspenseful drama, it’s just another morning at the suburban burger joint where Ruckus, Marco and Emma smoke up, talk smack, and – oh yeah – work. But when a bloodied stranger staggers in, the three teens are forced to choose sides in the grueling war advancing just outside the door.

2 blocks below Canal Street (between Broadway & Church Street)
A/C/E, N/R/Q, 6 to Canal Street or 1 to Franklin Street
