Of course, we have many, many more plays by female playwrights. We invite you to check out our Library Catalogue to see what we have by the playwright you’d like to read next.
If you need some ideas, have a look at American Theatre magazine’s The Other Canon: 10 Centuries of Plays by Women and The Kilroys’ The List 2015: The Top 7% of contemporary new plays by female and trans playwrights in American theatre.
