About us

Women's Writes is a new writing night for female-identifying playwrights. We've had sell out shows at The Arcola Theatre, VAULT Festival 2020 and can now be heard on The London Theatre Podcast. We want to redress the balance by promoting female playwrights.

"Championing women playwrights can redress the balance by not only creating female characters with more agency but also creating a platform for women’s voices to be heard. I, and many others, want to see more stories about real, fallible, complex, intelligent, brave women – the kind of women I see around me, written by female-identifying playwrights." Women's Writes Creator, Alex Critoph in The Stage

Women's Writes is produced by Alex Critoph
