SIX FULL PRODUCTIONS
Heart Shaped Nebula
This all began when we heard that a major American theatre company
had announced a season without including a single female voice.
Further investigation revealed that women, despite comprising the majority of theater audiences, are grossly underrepresented on most world stages. Only three plays by women have ever won a Tony Award, ironically named in 1947 after the great theatre maker - Antoinette Perry.

We all have a way of working to make the world a better place. Theatre is ours.
By producing a season of female playwrights, we're joining in the conversation. The challenge was not IF we could find six exciting plays to produce, but WHICH plays they would be. For our 24th season, Shotgun has decided to shine a light on twelve incredible plays -
six full productions and six fully staged readings
. We encourage you to join us this year as we do our part to celebrate some of the great storytellers of our craft. We promise this is just the beginning.
