Circa Theatre is proud to curate and host WTF! Women’s Theatre Festival, celebrating women’s voices and following on from
2016’s hugely successful Women in Theatre Hui. A second conference will be hosted at Whitireia on 11 March 2017 (to coincide with International Women’s Day 8 March) – Women In Theatre Hui – The Next Stage.

This month long event will run from 25 Feb – 26 March and showcases Caryl Churchill’s Escaped Alone, Hens’ Teeth and Miss Jean Batten. Circa will present a smorgasbord of performances, play readings, monologues, talks, forums and workshops that will celebrate the achievement of women and promote theatrical equality in Aotearoa.

BATS is also presenting Writes for Women – a short series of play readings from leading New Zealand women playwrights – Fix by Jess Sayer, Esther by Angie Farrow and Rēwena by Whiti Hereaka 14 – 16 March 6.30pm.
