BWW Blog: 28 Plays in 28 Days

Queer playwrights/plays everyday for the month of February.

BWW Blog: 28 Plays in 28 Days

Last December, I made a 31 plays by BIPOC playwrights in 31 days reading list. Now, I give you a 28 plays by queer playwrights in 28 days reading list. Shoutout to The New Play Exchange.

We have some of my all time favorites like Jen Silverman and Jan Rosenberg. I reread their plays as if the meaning of life is hidden in text.

I could only choose so many Rachel Lynett and Gina Femia plays...I could make a whole calendar of just their plays... better yet an advent calendar, but it counts down to pride month instead of the holidays!

If you joined in December, you know the drill.

Contact me on social media (@macymcowart) or through my website www.macymaecowart.com/contact. Let me know that you would like to be added to the February play reading list and I will get you set up!

I will add the list of plays below.

Hope ya can join!

The 2021 Yale Drama Series Prize has been awarded to Rachel Lynett who says, 'the seed of the play is two things: One, I wanted to address that the black experience is not monolithic [...] Two, what does it mean when we ask actors to take on all these roles and what's the toll on it for them?'
