“On Sunday, March 26 at 8pm the March edition of New York Madness will celebrate Women’s History Month with a lineup of all women writers, including Sarah Bernstein (The Summer House at Forward Flux), Cesi Davidson (Sojourner’s Truth with Urban Stages), Monet Hurst-Mendoza (Veil’d at WP Theater’s Pipeline Festival and Rising Circle Theater Collective), Krista Knight (Primal Play with New Georges; Salamander Leviathan at Joe’s Pub/Ars Nova), Mariah MacCarthy (Baby Mama: One Woman’s Quest to Give Her Child to Gay People; Honors Students with EST/Youngblood; Mrs. Mayfield’s Fifth Grade Glass of ’93 20-Year Reunion), Liz Morgan (Our Father at the 2017 Fire This Time Festival; Breaking & Entering in development at the Lark and National Black Theatre), Nandita Shenoy (Washer/Dryer with Ma-Yi Theater Company), Charly Evon Simpson (Hottentotted at Ars Nova’s 2016 ANT Fest; Scratching the Surface and who we let in with EST/Youngblood), and Crystal Skillman (Geek with Vampire Cowboys; King Kirby at The Brick; Cut with The Management, all NY Times Critics’ Picks).
The curators of March’s New York Madness, Illana Stein and Dina Vovsi, are excited to host a talented and diverse line-up of female playwrights whose work has shined at EST/Youngblood, Ma-Yi, Women’s Project Theater, New Georges, and more. After the success of the first all-female Madness last year presented at The Women’s Project Theater, the second annual all-female New York Madness celebrates March as Women’s History Month and highlights SWAN Day (Supporting Women Artists Now Day), which is March 25. As a way to give back to women in need, March’s New York Madness will also be hosting a bra and menstrual hygiene supplies drive for homeless women and girls, and will be collecting those items at the performance on March 26.”
We hope you can join us for this special edition of Madness!
