Supporting creative work by women
This just arrived in my inbox, and I wanted to make sure it is on everyone’s radar. If you’re in New York City February 3 – 20, 2011, you can see A GIRL WROTE IT, an evening of one acts by women playwrights. To learn more visit Wide Eyed Productions web site.
“A Girl Wrote It”
Performing February 3-20
at The Red Room Theatre on the Lower East Side

Thursdays-Saturdays at 7pm, Sundays at 2pm
(No performance on Sunday, Feb. 6)
A Girl Wrote It is an evening of One-Act plays by women playwrights. Because just 17% of America’s main stage productions are written by women, Wide Eyed attempts to tip the scales and expose eager audiences to more fantastic theatre. A Girl Wrote It is an ambitious evening of 4 dark, dangerous and humorous plays with universal themes. Wide Eyed takes great pride in presenting cohesive, well designed collections, and A Girl Wrote It is sure to please even the most discerning audience. In a review of our last showcase, Martin Denton said it was “a sterling example of how to mount an evening of short plays.”
