AUGUST 15, 2012: TICKETS ON SALE FOR WE ARE THEATRE
at the CHERRY LANE THEATRE NEW YORK CITY
Guerrilla Girls on Tour!, along with 50/50 in 2020 and the Women’s Initiative members of the Dramatists Guild, is presenting a speak-out on the evening of September 24th at the Cherry Lane Theater, located in New York City’s Greenwich Village and entitled WE ARE THEATRE.
WE ARE THEATRE intends to drive home the blatant lack of parity for women playwrights (less than 20% of all plays produced in the U.S. are written by women) by presenting a series of specially commissioned monologues, skits, songs, and scenes about sexism in the theatre. These short works have been written by just a handful of the thousands of women theatre artists who continue to persevere in the tradition of creating superior, innovative American theatre.
Works by Theresa Rebeck, Brooke Berman, Kate Bornstein, Thelma Virata de Castro, and Shay Youngblood will be among the 24 writers whose work will receive staged readings at WE ARE THEATRE. WE ARE THEATRE is supported by Gloria Steinem and co-sponsored by the Women’s Project and Productions, Hollaback!, Hedgebrook and LA Female Playwrights Initiative to name a few of the national organizations involved.
WE ARE THEATRE begins at 7PM. Tickets are available at the Cherry Lane box office as of August 15th, and are priced at $20 for general admission and $12 for seniors and students. For tickets:
