The Drama League Presents The Winks' WHAT WOMEN WANT Staged Reading Series 10/11
by BWW News Desk - Oct 10, 2016

The WINKS are back this autumn - and this time, we're focusing on the ladies and on local NYC playwrights! Each month will feature a 15-minute segment from original works by different writers which are related to, or inspired by, the theme for each month. The themes are as follows: September - MOTHER, October - MAIDEN, November - CRONE, December - MADONNA, January - WHORE. The only consistent element is that each play must feature a "great role" for a female actor. At the end of each night the audience will be invited to select their favorite play of the evening by casting an anonymous ballot. The audience favorite decided upon by majority vote will be named a semifinalist and invited to submit a full text* to Wide Eyed Productions' Artistic Board for consideration for our final round.
