Two Muses Theatre's Women's Playwriting Festival Kicks Off Next Month
This February, Two Muses Theatre of West Bloomfield will debut their Women's Playwriting Festival. The festival will consist of a plethora of short plays all written by women. Project director, Emilio Rodriguez, has collected the best short plays by women from all across the country, and has even found quite a few gems from right here in the Mitten State. In keeping with Two Muses Theatre's mission to provide opportunities for women in theatre and to promote female artists, the plays will also be directed by an all-female band of directors.
The festival will feature previously-produced plays such as Bless You by Paige Vanzo (Winning play, 2013 BoxFest and 2014 Detroit Fringe Festival), along with new plays exploring delightfully varied topics and styles ranging from a timely piece on gentrification in Detroit, to an absurd entry featuring a 60s girl group in purgatory whose members happen to be Sylvia Plath, Amy Winehouse, and Anne Sexton. Each show will provide a unique theatre experience, as a different set of plays will be produced at each of the three benefit performances.
Two Muses Theatre is an intimate 130-seat theatre located inside Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 6800 Orchard Lake Road in West Bloomfield (south of Maple). Performances are Friday, February 20 and Saturday, February 21 at 8:00pm and Sunday, February 22 at 2:00pm.
