Call for Women Playwright Submissions for Voices of Women Theatre Festival at Powerstories

EntSun News/10884329
TAMPA, Fla. - EntSun -- Celebrating their 21st anniversary this year and return to live in-theatre productions, Powerstories Theatre is debuting the Voices of Women Theatre Festival, the final in a trilogy that includes March's Voices of Truth and the upcoming Voices of Youth in July.

In collaboration with Thrϋ-Line Theatrical Production Company, Powerstories is currently seeking submissions from female playwrights around the world of any age and level of experience. The submission deadline is July 15, 2021. Ten selected productions will be performed live in the theatre and live-streamed worldwide or produced virtually online in the Festival's debut on October 6-17, 2021.

In a world dominated by male creation where statistics show that men write 80 percent of produced plays, the theatre's goal is to amplify and recognize the voices of female playwrights.

"The Festival is central to our mission of empowering women. It's critical that we continue to give women an opportunity to use their voices because that's who we are," explained Fran Powers, founder of Powerstories Theatre.

Submissions to Voices of Women Theatre Festival may be short works or full-length plays, a staged reading, or fully-produced production. Powerstories' objective is to give women a stage and celebrate the contributions of female writers with two weekends of highlighting eye-opening, conversation-starting, humorous, heartbreaking, real-life, and fictionalized plays and musicals.
