Well, we’re going gangbusters here at 3GT! As if the delightfully over-subscribed Salon Reading Series (which develops work by our Resident Playwrights) isn’t enough, we’re unveiling a series of special projects designed to reach out to our community of diverse Bay Area playwrights and theatre-lovers. Each project is headed up by a Resident Playwright with a passion for her idea – and as you can imagine, this group of women has a whole lot to be passionate about! It’s a really exciting time for 3Girls and I can’t wait to tell you about each of these initiatives as the year goes on.
Our very first new project is LezWrites, a program devoted to encouraging and presenting readings of short works by Bay Area lesbian playwrights (and other lesbian writer-performers). The project is curated by 3GT Resident Playwright Margery Kreitman, who is herself a renowned (and much beloved) lesbian monologist. We’re just getting started, but Margery hopes to present an ongoing program of readings every few months. The first evening of readings will take place on July 11 at our 2014 New Works Summer Festival. Our call for submissions is up now, so if you’re a lesbian writer who has a piece in hand, check it out! Deadline for submissions is May 21, 2014.
If you know the way to San Jose, go there this Tuesday night. City Lights Theatre is presenting an evening of readings of short plays by Bay Area playwrights on April 8 at 8 pm as part of their New Reader Series, and the evening will include works by 3GT Resident Playwrights Lee Brady and Patricia Milton (as well as Salon Series Selection Panelist Susan Jackson). 3GT is putting together a carpool from SF — if you’re interested in joining, email Spiraleena by Monday night.
We’re also just about ready to give you lots of details on the schedule and mission for the 2014 New Works Summer Festival, which is shaping up to be something really special. But. . . . one thing at a time! Or at least, one post a day! Stay tuned. . . .
