Subverting Expectations: Women’s Work in Theater


Sunday, October 11, 2015 3:30PM


What is feminist theater—is it simply a play written by a woman or is there more to it? How are plays by women different? Would you know a play was written by a woman by the writing alone? From comedy to drama to musicals, in solo shows, ensemble pieces or epic sagas, women playwrights are not only breaking the fourth wall, they’re breaking the glass ceiling. Arena Stage playwrights Allison Engel, Margaret Engel (Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End) and Karen Zacarías (Destiny of Desire) discuss how women are seen and received in theater by audiences and artists, how they’re subverting those expectations and what’s next. Now that women have the world’s attention, what will they do with it?
