Join our Mistress of Ceremonies (company member Liz White) for A Girl Wrote It: an evening of One-Act plays by women playwrights. Because just 17% of America's main stage productions are written by women, Wide Eyed attempts to tip the scales and expose eager audiences to more fantastic theatre. A Girl Wrote It is an ambitious evening of 4 dark, dangerous and humorous plays with universal themes. Wide Eyed takes great pride in presenting cohesive, well designed collections, and A Girl Wrote It is sure to please even the most discerning audience. In a review of our last showcase, Martin Denton said it was "a sterling example of how to mount an evening of short plays."
