Nominations are coming in for the ICWP 50/50 Applause Awards.
Theatres and theatre fans are nominating theatres around the world that are achieving 50/50 gender equity for female playwrights.
We are encouraging everyone who enjoys live theatre and wants to see that plays by women playwrights are given the same ratio of productions, promotion and reward as plays authored by male playwrights.
It is not only important for the female playwrights themselves that their work is shown on main stages of theatres around the globe, but it is also important for society that the stories, points of view and aspirations find a place in the cultural landscape of every nation.
Lauren Gunderson introduced the 2018 Awards with this encouraging video.
The Deadline for Nominations for the 50/50 Applause Awards is March 15. Guidelines and nomination form can be found here
