Project Y Theatre Company will present 4 weeks of new plays by women to New York City in the form of the 4th annual Women in Theatre Festival (#witfestival), the festival that pushes past the notion of ‘Gender Parity’ by going ‘Beyond Parity’ with an entirely women-led lineup of writers. This year, Project Y Theatre Company has commissioned 7 new plays by women writers to head up the festival.
