The Story

Greetings! We are theater artists Brid Henry and Julietta Benson, aka Pretty Shrew Productions, and we are ecstatic to be producing The Future Is Female Festival: MPLS.

WHAT IS THAT?
2017 is the inaugural year of The Future Is Female Festival, a national festival with 22 outposts across the United States. The Future Is Female Festival: MPLS will be a one night only staged reading of five *brand new* 10-minute plays featuring professional theater artists from the Twin Cities. The plays, written by female playwrights, will illuminate what "the future is female" looks like and/or means to them.

Now more than ever do we have to know what such a future can emulate. 

As one of the only outposts in MPLS, Pretty Shrew Productions is partnering up with the Playwrights' Center to host the event, but we need your help to make it happen

WHERE WILL MY MONEY GO?
To the artists. The Future Is Female Festival: MPLS is dedicated to providing compensation to the playwrights, actors, director and other staff involved. 

THE BREAKDOWN
Specifically, your donations will help the following:

$1350
compensation for six actors, five playwrights, a director, and a stage manager

$250
for printing our program and marketing materials

$45
to cover the cost of online advertising

Every dollar counts to make The Future Is Female Festival: MPLS possible, and we will not take it for granted. We will, however, be incredibly grateful for any and all contributions. Your generous donation will make its mark in this historic, and futuristic, event.
