This summer we are proud to be touring to Sweden for the first time - performing a special edition of Feminists Are Funny at the 9th Women's Playwrights International Festival in Stockholm on August 18th. The National Theatre of Sweden - Riksteatern - is the host of the Conference and the theme this year is the democratic stage. Will we see you in Stockholm? It's a great opportunity to meet women in theatre, build networks and create genuine, lasting contacts between like-minded women playwrights from around the world.
