Works by Women

Supporting creative work by women

Looking back and ahead

Since Works by Women was launched in the fall of 2009, we have supported more than 52 productions in New York City, pumping tens of thousands of dollars int0 works written, directed and designed by women.

Our first two outings of 2011 — Three Pianos at New York Theatre Workshop and the Working Theater’s production of Honey Brown Eyes — have already sold out.  And, we have interviews with Stefanie Zadravec and Erica Schmidt, the playwright and director of Honey Brown Eyes, on the horizon.  Check back next week for their take on the play’s creation.

Expect more interviews with the women involved in the productions we see on the blog as well as additional interviews and articles about what’s going across the country.  One thing the Wasserstein Prize controversy reminded us is that the spotlight needs to be widened to shine on the fabulous women working and creating theatre across the United States.

As a small group of volunteers, our reach/scope is currently focused on New York City, but we look forward to expanding it in the year ahead.  Your suggestions are most welcome.

Happy 2011 from Works by Women. We hope to see you at the theatre very soon.
