It’s hard to believe that August has already come to town! San Francisco is teeming with happy tourists, locals are off to the coast, and we hope that all of you are happily deep in a mid-summer nights’ dream.
Here at 3GT, we’ve been catching our breath after our high-intensity week of theater at the New Works Festival in July. It was such a pleasure to meet so many of you– 3GT Club members and new audience members all– at Thick House. If you were there, you already know that every reading event was packed –from Monday to Sunday–and a great time was had by all. If you couldn’t make it in person this year, check out our 2014 New Works Festival page for summaries and pix. And mark your 2015 calendars for next July!
Congratulations to our drawing winners: Seven lucky Festival audience members won memberships in 3GT Club for the next year. A warm welcome to Stephanie Miller, Matthew Goslawski, Sylvia Kratins, Bill McGuire, Anna Gade, Patricia Cotter and Ana Rubke. We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2015 Salon Series starting in January.
Just around the corner
This fall, 3GT expands our program to support individual Special Projects designed and curated by our Resident Playwrights. The 3GT Special Projects program is intended to give our Resident Playwrights opportunities to collaborate with other female playwrights and artists, while giving 3GT a chance to partner with like-minded theater companies (in SF and beyond). We’re excited to reach out and share our mission with as many members of the community as possible!
On September 20, Robin Bradford’s play LOW HANGING FRUIT (which had two marvelous staged readings/discussion nights at the Festival) opens at the Zephyr Theatre in LA, and runs through October 26. 3GT will be coordinating at least one night in LA as a special event for our San Francisco fans — stay tuned for details and dates.
On September 28, Margery Kreitman will present the second performance in our LezWrites! project, which debuted at the July Festival. Watch your email for ticket and sign-up information next month. Note that submissions are accepted all year on a rolling basis (next date will be February 2015). Eligibility and information here.
Lots more to report in September. Until then, enjoy the rest of the summer!
