Ashland New Plays Festival
/

Ashland New Plays Festival is all about celebrating new works and new voices. 

And its quest for diversity led to this spring's first ever "Women's Invitational," featuring works and workshops from women playwrights. 

Three plays by women playwrights will be read during the event this week (March 22-27), and event chair Laura Jacqmin will co-lead a workshop on what it takes to make a coherent play.  Laura Jacqmin visits to talk about parity in playwriting.    

UPDATE: Jiehae Park's "Hannah and the Dread Gazebo" will be one of the plays in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's 2017 season.
