Pasadena Playhouse & L.A. Female Playwrights Initiative & ME!

Lovelies, I’m attaching Seema Sueko, the Assistant Artistic Director of Pasadena Playhouse’s email, below. If you can, PLEASE come – I might have a micro-read (one page) of my play that night afterwards. Plus, there’s FOOD. And DRINK! And if you come, I’ll hug you to pieces! It’s a week away!
Dear Friends,
Please join me on Friday, June 13, at The Pasadena Playhouse for a night of theater, networking and fun, all in the name of celebrating women playwrights and supporting gender parity in the performing arts.
The Pasadena Playhouse is producing the play STONEFACE written by LA-Based female writer Vanessa Claire Stewart and starring her husband French Stewart. On Friday, June 13, the LA FPI (Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative) is organizing a group to attend the performance to celebrate Vanessa. After the show, we’ll all go to the upstairs Carrie Hamilton Theatre for food, drink, and Micro-Reads. Micro-Reads are quick, fun, one-page scripts, written by members of the LA FPI and read aloud by the cast of STONEFACE.
The entire evening costs only $28.00. That includes admission to STONEFACE and the Micro-Reads – that is 50%-off the regular ticket price.
Our goal is to demonstrate that producing plays by women is smart business. Did you know that in the field of nonprofit American theater, approximately only 17% of the new plays produced are written by women? – and that’s not representative of the number of women playwrights. There’s an interesting article about this here:http://www.giarts.org/article/discrimination-and-female-playwright.
I hope you’ll join me in supporting gender parity in theater on June 13. Here are all the details. Order your ticket soon as space is limited:

    Love LA FPI and got my tix. I actually had to resign from my duties as Eblast editor at LA FPI in order to devote my time to LARA’s Board. Great to see the two groups overlapping. 🙂

      Really??? Oh WOW! Well, I’m thrilled you’re going to be there! I’m not a member of LA FPI, but I know people who are who put the call out… YAY! I’m so glad you’ll be going, Kady!

    This sounds like fun! I soooo want to be there! I need to work on the babysitter situation. :}

    • Christine says:

      I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a babysitter for you, Samanthe! I know how tough it can be to get out of the house. Hugs!
