About the festival


After selling out at The Arcola Theatre Women's Writes comes to VAULT Festival 2020.


A brand new event showcasing new writing from female identifying playwrights.


Prepare to see three brand new, never performed short plays by emerging female playwrights brought to life by a professional company of directors and actors.


Step into three different worlds of complex, intricate female characters with none of those boring archetypal forms. Featuring woman who are courageous, intelligent and equally fallible.


The three plays will be chosen from hundreds of submissions to Women's Writes with each writer wanting to challenge the current image we see and to redress the balance with new female voices.


Women's Writes returns but this time with brand new short plays.


We've already seen women learning to love their bodies, women exposing the mental health side effects of The Pill, fighting for tighter gun control laws, grappling with sibling relationships and embracing queer identity - so the question is where will our new writers take us?


Women's Writes is a new venture between writer, actor and producer Alex Critoph and producer Laura Dickens (CDG) created to challenge the female stereotype seen in plays and on screen.


Women's Writes provides a platform to celebrate female driven plays and unique female voices.
