Women’s Writes is a festival of new writing showcasing female voices. The aim of the evening is to promote female-identifying playwrights and stories with female-driven narratives. Prepare to see 8 ten-minute plays with complex, intricate female characters who don’t stick to any of those boring archetypal forms!
