More About Us

We produced the world premiere production of "Anatomy of a Hug" by New York playwright Kat Ramsburg in 2015, winner of our first new play contest.
We recently finished a week-long development workshop of our second play contest winner, "The Flora and Fauna" by Los Angeles playwright Alyson Mead.
We have produced numerous readings, been featured in both local and international press to raise awareness of the issue of gender parity, and conducted panel discussions on the topic as well as participated in national conferences.
We have employed female theatrical artists across all disciplines and have noticed an increase in representation in other local theatres since our inception in 2015.
We are working hard to establish ourselves as a professional theatre presence as so much of our valley offerings are community organizations who do not pay their artists. We have insisted on paying at least a stipend to all of our artists.
