From Study report website:
"The results of the LA FPI Study have given us a figure which represents the percentage of work on stages in the Greater Los Angeles area written by women.
- A sampling of theaters who self-reported in the survey portion of the Study revealed that less than 20% of the plays produced or presented in workshops or readings for a ten-year period (2000-2009) were written by women.
- Of the 4796 productions in LA STAGE Alliance’s database from 2002-2010, only 993, or about 20%, were written or co-written by women playwrights.
While slightly above the widely accepted national average of 17%, this figure is far from representative of the work that’s being created by Los Angeles playwrights."
