Showcasing the Works of Female Playwrights from March 7 -16, 2024.
In conjunction with Women’s History Month, Powerstories Theatre is proud to host the fourth annual international Voices of Women Theatre Festival live in the USF College of the Arts and online, utilizing our season theme, “Critical Issues Take Center Stage.”
As part of our 2024 Season, we will be doing a hybrid program – a combination of in-theatre staged reading productions during the first week and digital, view-on-demand performances in the second week. The international festival offers an artistic platform empowering, encouraging, and enabling diverse voices to inspire audiences worldwide through the gift of sharing strong voices and meaningful stories. Powerstories is proud to provide opportunities for artists and playwrights of all genres to share their original short and full-length plays and musicals with our expanding community and audiences near and far.
Powerstories’ Voice of Women Festival demonstrates our dedication to diversity and inclusivity, encouraging submissions from female-identifying playwrights, playwrights of color, and other underrepresented groups. We are committed to promoting intersectional equity and encourage a wide range of submissions related to the theater of historically marginalized populations, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities.
The Voices of Women Theatre Festival offers up to six short plays (ten minutes) and six long plays and musicals (up to sixty minutes) during the run of the festival, highlighting humorous, heartbreaking, eye-opening, and conversation-starting performances that match the season theme of “Critical Social Issues Take Center Stage.” Please keep this theme in mind when submitting your work for consideration.
