We're thrilled to announce that Women Centre Stage: Powerplay was a huge success. Read more from our Artistic Director Sue Parrish in her letter to the Guardian

After two highly successful Women Centre Stage festivals, plus a recent landmark meeting with Arts Council England chair Sir Nicholas Serota, aimed at driving forward the fight against female under-representation in the industry, we are thrilled with the reception we received at the Women Centre Stage Symposium: Are we at the Tipping Point? On the 3rd of February 2019 at Hampstead Theatre.
Hosted by Rosemary Squire DBE, and with a Keynote from WOW Festival’s Artistic Director Jude Kelly OBE, the event offered an incredible line up of panellists including Toni Racklin, the Head of Theatre and Dance at the Barbican Centre, GRAEAE’s Artistic Director Jenny Sealey, Sphinx Theatre’s Artistic Director Sue Parrish, academic Jennifer Tuckett, director Rebecca Frecknall, actor Cherrelle Skeete and playwrights April de Angelis, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, Winsome Pinnock and Timberlake Wertenbaker.
Women Centre Stage Symposium was sponsored by Nick Hern Books and supported by Arts Council England and Hampstead Theatre. Other partners included: Stage Directors UK, Equity, Era 50:50, University Women in the Arts and The Writers’ Guild.
We are thrilled to anounce that our collection of plays, Women Centre Stage: Eight Short Plays By and About Women, has been published by Nick Hern and is now available to buy here: Nickhernbooks.co.uk/women-centre-stage. The plays are a selection from the many that were commissioned and developed as part of our two Women Centre Stage festivals to date. Selected by Artistic Director Sue Parrish, the collection includes In Wilderness by April De Angelis, Chloe Todd Fordham’s The Nightclub and Tituba by Winsome Pinnock.
SONG OF DINA, a new opera with spoken word - Dina, only sister of Joseph, before his coat of many colours. Now it's her turn to be heard!

We're already looking forward to Inside Bitch by Clean Break at the Royal Court, which opens on the 27th February and runs until the 23rd March. Created by a devised ensemble of women who aren’t guessing, Inside Bitch is a playful subversion of the representation of women in prison and how things aren’t quite as seen on TV. For more information head to the Royal Court website.
