According to estimates, only about a quarter of plays performed across America in 2016 were written by women. That lack of representation nationwide inspired those working in the local theater scene to launch the Women’s Voices Theater Festival. Three years later, the festival’s second interation features works by women at 24 theaters across Washington throughout January and February. We explore the space women hold in the local theater scene–and how that compares to the scene at the large–through the lens of the festival.
