by BWW News Desk - Mar 5, 2016

365 WOMEN A YEAR: A PLAYWRITING PROJECT involves hundreds of women who have written one-act plays about extraordinary women from both the past and present. The project's goal is to write women back into the social consciousness. This year's 365 WOMEN A YEAR event invites us to enter the worlds of 1800's Sahara Desert, refugee-laden 1930's Paris, mental illness and an often attacked tearoom in the early 20th century on MacDougal Street. These and other diverse stories showcase the talents of Kendra Augustin, Karin Diann Williams, Robin Rice, Susan Shafer, D. Lee Miller, Michael angel Johnson, Barbara Kahn and Kat Mustatea. All the plays are written and directed by women. The evening of readings will take place on March 23rd, at the Theater for the New City, Cino Theater, 155 1st Avenue at 10th Street. (By subway: L to 1st Avenue; 6 to Astor Place.) The readings are free, but reservations are highly suggested. www.mustatea.com/365-women. (more...)
