She Writes – showcasing work by women

34 plays showcased, work by 26 women writers

Almost a year!

We have been running She Writes nights for almost a year now, in fact with our September show it will be a year, so I thought I’d do a little summary of what we have achieved with the showcase.

She Writes showcase nights are a fun, relaxed way to spend an evening and watch some work by women writers. They are held in the informal setting of the Horsebridge Centre’s bar-cafe. They are held on a roughly 2-monthly schedule.

Since the showcase started in October 2011, we have showcased an incredible 34 short plays from 26 different writers. We were also invited to take She Writes to Lounge on the Farm, so took a show written by some of our Kent writers to this festival. UK-based women writers are invited to submit plays on a loose theme to each event and we have showcased a real range of styles and topics.

The next show at The Horsebridge Centre is on 12 September, and is part of Whitstable’s Biennale Satellite. The topic we asked for submissions on was ‘What is art?’ and we have a really good selection of answers to this. Come along and celebrate as we take the total of plays by women that we’ve showcased to over 40!
