Female Protagonist is a monthly staged reading series featuring new plays and screenplays that achieve gender parity, both in the story being told and in the makeup of the creative team.
Each reading represents a room of theater and film practitioners where at least half of the voices — cast, characters, writers, directors, designers, and producers — belong to women.
Women make decisions. Women drive the plot.
At least half the creative team is female.
Equal rights are a central theme of the work.
The writer is a woman.
The director is a woman.
The producer is a woman.
