Women's Voices Theater Festival (DC) - BUST

Events Calendar

Women's Voices Theater Festival (DC)
From Monday, January 15, 2018
To Thursday, February 15, 2018


In January-February 2018, the country’s largest festival dedicated exclusively to women in theater returns to Washington, D.C., uniting 25 of the region’s premier theaters to present the work of women playwrights and set a national example about gender parity. The Women’s Voices Theater Festival will present 13 world premieres, as well as an abundance of American and regional premieres.

In addition to addressing broad issues of gender representation, Festival productions address topical issues that add to its immediacy—translating the immigrant experience, the intersection of race relations and police work, the sovereignty of Indian Nations, and finding balance between religion and sexuality, among other narratives.
