6 plays: 6 – writers – 6 – directors – a cast of actresses
THEATRE OF WOMEN (TOW) is Dream Theatre Company’s annual play festival consisting of ten minute plays written, rehearsed and performed in a span of 24 hours that celebrates the actress as performing artist.
Dream Theatre Company’s focus on the actress as artist and lead is apparent in all of their productions. The idea behind the creation of TOW was to push the art of acting through the examination of the actress in the play. These women are created to be strong, sexy, funny, villains, heroines, demons or even to play men, boys or genderless roles. “They are created so we can show the world that Passion, Strength, Innocence, and Intelligence are traits to be valued and celebrated.” Over the years this mission hasn’t changed and many artistic relationships and funny, creative scripts have blossomed from these 24 hour festivals. This year we will uphold the traditions of the past while continuing to explore the question: What is it to be a woman in theatre today?
