Scenes by Historic Women Playwrights: Read by Luminaries of the Stage

Co-sponsored by Women and Theatre Program of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) and the Davis Performing Arts Center

Too many gifted women playwrights of the past are too much forgotten. Three superb, acclaimed actors bring the past alive in this concert reading: Kathleen Chalfant, Mary Beth Peil, and Tamara Tunie will read great scenes from plays by celebrated women writers such as Zoƫ Akins, Rachel Crothers, Edna Ferber, Angelina Grimke, Lillian Hellman, Fay Kanin, and Edith Wharton, directed by Joan Vail Thorne. When the past comes alive, it points the way to the future. This special event draws New York-based theater artists to the Georgetown, reminding DC audiences and artists alike of the great contributions of women to American theater history with wit, drama, and lively contemporary stakes. This free, public reading is presented in conjunction with the Women and Theatre Program's annual national conference, hosted this year in the Davis Performing Arts Center.
