In the spirit of promoting opportunities for female and trans playwrights and directors, Colt Coeur is partnering with WP Theater (the nation's oldest and largest theater company dedicated to developing, producing, and promoting the work of female-identified and trans theater artists) on the company's Parity Plays Festival. The festival features four public readings of new plays by Rehana Lew Mirza, Lucy Thurber, Leah Nanako Winkler, and Catherine Yu. Among the performers are Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!), Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter), and Trudie Styler (The Seagull). For a list and description of the plays, click the website link below.
