Foulds Theatre Ticket Office

Although Theatre Conspiracy’s first show of its upcoming season does not open until October, its line-up of productions is already creating a great deal of buzz. That’s because Theatre Conspiracy has declared 2015-2016 to be the year of the female playwright.

“If you were to look at the past few season of theater in Southwest Florida, you will see that less than 20% of the plays produced were written by Bill Taylor in 2012 at Installation of Fire Dance 1female playwrights” says Producing Artistic Director Bill Taylor. “It is not only Southwest Florida. It is the entire country. The 2013-14 Broadway season did not have any new plays written by women. Surveys and studies regularly find that plays by women make up a fraction of theaters’ productions across the country. This year we will do our part to highlight some amazing plays by women both classic and new. Oh and by the way, this is definitely NOT a chick-flick season. There are some ground breaking award-winning shows.”
