Women’s Project—the nation’s oldest and largest theater dedicated to producing plays written and directed by women—launched its 26th Annual Women of Achievement Awards with a cocktail party at the beautiful home of Mitzi Perdue. The Awards are given annually to extraordinary women from a variety of fields—Lucia Hwong-Gordon,
Ruth Mayleas, Annette Green, Sallie Bingham, and
Tina Chen were among those in attendance at the launch party. This year’s Awards will be given at a Gala Benefit on Monday, March 7, 2011, and will honor model and philanthropist Bonnie Evans, and actor Bebe Neuwirth.

About Women's Project
 

Women's Project was founded by Julia Miles in 1978 to address the conspicuous under-representation of women artists working in the American theater. Thirty-one years later, employment statistics for women playwrights and directors have improved, But there is work to be done. Even today, only 20% of opportunities in the professional theater nationwide are granted to women theater artists.

Kathleen Chalfant says: "I was a founding member of Women's Project at the very beginning when Julia Miles found herself appalled at the status of women writers and directors in the American Theatre. In the intervening 30 years, Women's Project has been an essential part of changing that equation. Its greatest contribution perhaps has been to create an "old girls' network" that provides a community of supportive equals who prove that anything is possible for anyone with a little luck, a lot of talent, and a world of women cheering you on."


Now under the leadership of Julie Crosby, Producing Artistic Director, Women's Project remains devoted to its mission of producing and promoting theater created by women. To that end, we:

*Provide
women’s perspectives on a wide variety of political, social, international, religious, and cultural topics

*Produce
established and emerging women artists at WP’s home, the
Julia Miles Theater

*Mentor exceptional writers, directors, and producers through WP’s Lab

*Develop
new works and classic plays by women in readings and workshops

*Commission
new works and adaptations of classic plays by women

*Advocate
on behalf of women theater artists within the national and international professional theater


*Educate
students in grades 1-12 about the cultural and historic significance of women theater artists

*Celebrate
women of achievement from a variety of fields at our annual
Gala

*Awaken
audiences and theater professionals to the power and range of women theater artists.

Woven through WP's colorful tapestry are some of this country's most esteemed writers; among them are Julie Ann Boyd and Joan Micklin Silver (A My Name is Alice), Rinne Groff (Inky), Emily Mann (Still Life), Naomi Wallace (Birdy), Maria Irene Fornes (Abingdon Square), and Eve Ensler (Ladies). An impressive roster of directors have made their mark here, including Anne Bogart
(Go Go Go
), Lisa Peterson (The Chemistry of Change), and Diane Paulus (Best of Both Worlds).
