100 Great Plays for Women

Lucy Kerbel Price: $19.99

"There arenít any good plays for women"

This unique and inspiring Guide to 100 great plays for women seeks to dispel this myth

Women buy the most theatre tickets, make up half the acting profession and are usually the largest cohort of any youth theatre or drama club

And yet they're still under-represented on stage

100 Great Plays for Women seeks to address this by recognising, celebrating, and promoting plays that put female performers centre-stage

The Guide offers compact and insightful introductions to 100 plays - each of which has an entirely or predominantly female cast, with the female characters taking an equal or decisive role in driving the action

Also highlighted are 10 plays for solo female performers

The result is a personal but wide-ranging reappraisal of the theatrical canon, celebrating the very best writing from ancient times to the present day that has female protagonists at its heart

An essential resource for directors and producers looking for plays and female actors trying to track down new audition pieces

REVIEWS

"A gem of a book ... Lucy Kerbel has done hard-working directors and artistic directors, of spaces large and small, a great service" ~ Kate Mosse

NB This is a Guide to 100 plays - it does not contain 100 plays!
