Auditions for our 6th annual short Women’s Play Festival – the plays are short, not the women! – will be held on Saturday, February 22, and Sunday, February 23, at 1 pm in McKee Gym, room 4, on the University of Missouri campus.
Roles are available for men and women of all heights and backgrounds. All actors cast will receive a small stipend for their work on the production.
The Festival runs March 13, 14 & 15 at 7 pm at The Bridge in Columbia.
Now in its sixth year, the short Women’s Play Festival features new plays from women playwrights from across the country. This year’s featured playwrights are Camilla Maxwell (Australia and NY), Erin Grogan (NY and MA), DL Siegel (NY), and Emily Rogers (CA), with a special “remote” performance of a play by Rachel Atkins (WA).

We’re shifting directions this – our SEVENTH – season. Yes, we’ll still bring you the IAT-brand, cutting edge, purposefully nomadic, and actor-centered theatre that you know and love.
this season, we’re focusing our efforts on supporting and producing opportunities for NEW PLAYS (like brand-spankin’ and haven’t-been-widely-or-ever-produced new plays) and WOMEN PLAYWRIGHTS.

Staged Reading of Recommended Reading for Girls by Ellen Struve (former sWPF playwright) + Panel Discussion about Women in the Arts
SilverBox Photography Studio – 107 Orr Street
About the play:
Recommended Reading for Girls invites you to step into a storybook. When Amy returns to her childhood home to care for her ailing mother, she discovers uninvited guests from her favorite childhood novels. A beloved crew of literary heroines turns the household topsy-turvy as Amy struggles to reconcile with the stories she loves, the people she loves, and the stories she has told herself in this warm, funny, fanciful play. Recommended Reading for Girls prompts us to consider how women view and construct their roles in society.
