The 3rd Annual Down for #TheCount One-Act Play Festival is back. Down for #TheCount is a call to action for American theater and the female community at large to celebrate the female voice and experience. Currently, approximately 22% of American theater productions have been written by women; for women of color, the numbers are even lower — a dismal 3%. This festival seeks to change those numbers locally and nationally and to give a platform to the voices and perspectives of women on the American stage. Now in its 3rd year, Bishop Arts Theatre Center has invited playwrights from all over the country including Dallas-Fort Worth local playwrights Mariam Olbaidullah Baig and Linda Jones and nationally recognized playwrights Ife Olujobi, Katherine Craft, Kristiana Rae Colon, and Tsehaye Geralyn Hebert to feature their work on the BATC stage.

10-year-old María is having trouble in school, so her mom sends her to stay with her Coahuiltecan grandmother in distant Laredo for discipline and perspective. There, María is told an ancient story of young Yana Wana who followed a revered deer to find water to save her people. Yana Wana's story exposes an amazing and unknown ancestral connection to the bluebonnet that gives María a renewed sense of self and family pride. You may have read one version in school; now we invite you to come see the legend through the eyes of Yana Wana in this world premiere. A beautiful, original play that illustrates the power of heritage and the value of one's own story – especially one as ancient as the petroglyphs of Texas.
