2Cents Theatre presents ACTING OUT INK FEST 2017

2Cents Theatre Group's popular 3-day festival of female playwrights is back for year four! We are once again gathering around 100 artists for this exciting event, from playwrights to directors to actors and street artists, to celebrate the FEMALE PLAYWRIGHT and ART! The Fest will take place March 17-19 at the Hudson Theatres in Hollywood, right in the heart of Theatre Row and the Los Angeles 99-seat community.
Showtimes begin at 2pm on Friday March 17, and continue every 90 minutes through Sunday night, for a total of 20 45-minute performances over the course of the weekend. The 2017 INK lineup includes 20 short plays all under 30 minutes plus 3 feature length one-acts. Special events of the weekend include the opening night feature, and opening night party on Friday night, sponsored by Fat Sal's and Velvet Margarita, and the inspiring closing night ceremony on Sunday, featuring live performances and special guests, celebrating the weekend.
ART will flood not just the theatre, but also the STREET & the Hudson Cafe. There will be hundreds of artists of all kinds gathering all weekend long to share their ART, you're not gonna want to miss a moment!
2Cents is a young not for profit theater company in Hollywood, fiscally partnered with Los Angeles Women's Theatre Project. The wonderful women of LAWTP inspired this venture, with their dedication to the often overlooked female playwright. We spend several months reading submitted plays by women, and in the end come to a selection of around 20 beautiful works, all unique and varied in subject, theme, characters, everything. Each year, our collection of plays for INK Fest is meant to represent the female artist as versatile, unpredictable, and ultimately undefinable.
