What a lovely group of active, engaged women story tellers! Writer Elizabeth Coplan joined us for a reading of her play “Something Wicked” featuring Sara J. Carson, Heidi Appe, Pilar Walsh and Tinks Lovelace.
Thank you to Little Black Dress Ink and the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative for inviting me to participate as a director with the 6th Annual Female Playwrights ONSTAGE Festival at the Samuel French Bookstore.
The theme this year is “Hot Mess”, presenting the best (and hottest, and messiest) new plays written by women, in cooperation with the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative.
I will direct a 10 minute play titled “Something Wicked” by Seattle based writer Elizabeth Coplan. My wonderful cast of ladies brew up a plan to take power from the patriarchy while finding unity as mothers, daughters, sisters and friends. Super proud to be working with Sara J. Carson, Heidi Appe, Pilar Walsh and Tinks Lovelace for this reading.
Playwrights from this round of staged readings will be advanced to the next round of festival competition. Show your support for women storytellers by coming out for this free reading. Details on the LAFPI facebook page.
Little Black Dress INK and The LA Female Playwrights Initiative both strive to create opportunities for female playwrights while also strengthening the female playwright network and community.
The Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative is an LA-based movement working to ensure that women playwrights are fairly represented on local stages, and beyond. Check out their website at www.LAFPI.com.
