Description

As the nation's oldest and largest company dedicated to producing and promoting theater created by women, Women's Project is the magnetic force field for innovative artists and adventurous theater-goers from around the world.

Women's Project was founded in 1978 by Julia Miles to address the significant under-representation of women in the American theater. Since then, countless artists have launched their careers and achieved substantial recognition at WP, including Anne Bogart, Eve Ensler, Emily Mann, Lynn Nottage, Maria Irene Fornes, Leigh Silverman, Katori Hall, Diane Paulus, Paula Vogel, and Anna Deavere Smith, among the many.

Throughout its luminous history, WP has staged over 600 mainstage productions and developmental projects, and published eleven anthologies of plays by women.

Under the leadership of Julie Crosby since 2006, WP's mission remains absolutely vital. Only 20% of professionally produced plays in the nation have women playwrights and directors at the helm. And frustratingly, the statistics precipitously decline at the largest theaters. Women's Project is proud to give women theater artists the opportunities they so richly deserve, but rarely receive.
