A Girl Wrote It is back again after its critical success in 2011. This year, Wide Eyed Productions has upped the ante by bringing together some of the most gifted emerging and established female playwrights being produced today.

From first flings and early love to failing bonds, exploration, and erotic courtship, the five stories in this year’s A Girl Wrote It will present comedies and dramas that explore relationships and contemporary issues which press and spark our imaginations.

Kicking off their fifth season with new Artistic Director Tim Butterfield at the helm, Wide Eyed Productions looks to establish itself as a new staple of the Off-Broadway scene with risk-taking, relevant theatre that highlights a richly talented and established ensemble of actors, directors, writers, and artists.
