Women’s Theatre Festival 2018




Celebrating Women’s Voices 
17 Aug – 27 Oct 
Various times and charges apply

The 19th September 2018 is the 125th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in New Zealand and Circa Theatre is delighted to celebrate this, as well as New Zealand Theatre month by once again hosting WTF! Women’s Theatre Festival throughout August, September and October.

The four plays (Bloomsbury Women and the Wild Colonial Girl, Modern Girls in Bed, Blonde Poison and Uneasy Dreams and Other Things), one devised work (Medusa), one developmental season (Rants in the Dark), two play readings (Tender, Sean Penn in his Boat) and workshops all showcase women playwrights, directors, designers, actors, dancers, musicians and theatre workers.

They give voice to historical female characters as well as focusing on issues facing women today and are more fully explained in the following pages. The seasons start in August and run into October, but those productions in September are all written by New Zealand women.

Circa Theatre is also proud to be hosting the Fourth Women in Theatre Hui details TBC
