Ever wanted to spend International Women’s Day watching 6 short plays written by female-identifying playwrights? Well, after two sell-out shows at Arcola Theatre in 2019 and a kick-ass visit to VAULT Festival 2020, Women’s Writes returns with a programme of brand new shortplays!
Prepare to see never performed short plays by emerging female playwrights brought to life by a professional company of directors and actors. Step into 6 different worlds of complex, intricate female characters with none of those boring archetypal forms. Featuring women who are courageous, intelligent and equally fallible.
