The Bechdel Fest 2 Director Line-Up
Last month, we had the privilege of announcing the roster of playwrights joining us for Bechdel Fest 2, a line-up that included award-winning slam poets, literary managers, artistic directors, and one artist whose latest directorial effort is currently playing Off-Broadway. This morning, we’re pleased to announce an equally-as-exciting team of directors.
We are so excited to be joined six incredibly talented. female directors, an assortment of artists whose work we’ve admired for years: Tara Branham, Majel Cuza, Krista D’ Agostino, Patrice Foster, Elizabeth Laidlaw, and Lauren Lundy. Rounding out this team will be BNT artistic director Benjamin Brownson and literary manager Spenser Davis. The ninth entry in the festival will be a presentation by She Crew, a Chicago-based summer program dedicated to giving young women a voice through performances of theater, song, and dance.
We are currently accepting audition submissions for the eight plays in this year’s festival – for information on how to reserve an audition slot, please visit the League of Chicago Theatres listing.
This year’s festival will be produced at the Greenhouse Theater Center, October 19 – 22. Check back for showtimes and ticket info, to be announced soon.
