2022 - 2023 Season

Celebrating 30 years of Theater By Women For Everyone!

Science, family, and survival of the fittest.

Directed by Suzan Fete

Featuring Elyse Edelman & Mary MacDonald Kerr

Two biologists meet on the eve of a prestigious conference. But the two women aren’t quite strangers. They share a complex and mysterious bond.

Evolution and emotions collide in this smart and compelling play about science, family and destiny.

“Sarah Treem’s play brims with ideas and emotional colors that eddy and refract like rivulets in a lively plunging stream.” - The Washington Post

People are hard.

Directed by Ben Raanan

Mid-West Premiere
In collaboration with Phamaly Theatre Company, Denver,
and Pink Umbrella Theater Company, Milwaukee

Unemployed truck driver Eddie is struggling to rebuild a relationship with his estranged wife, Ani, and Jess is trying to navigate the day to day with John, her new boss in a job she really needs.

Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this achingly human and surprisingly funny play is about the forces that bring people together, the realities of facing the world with disabilities and how deeply we all need each other.

What will survive? And will it spark joy?

Directed by Elizabeth Margolius

World Premiere - Produced as part of the World Premiere Wisconsin Festival

A woman stands in the middle of a room. She is an island in a sea of stuff - her stuff. It's a disaster. Fortunately, she's a detective and she has just read Marie Kondo's self-help book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

As she excavates her mountain of possessions, she uncovers a terrifying mystery. Can she follow the series of clues and solve the puzzle in time to save the planet?
