TWTP Presents the 13th Annual Women's Work Festival
Tennessee Womens Theater Project returns to the Looby Theater beginning Friday September 20th, with the 13th Annual Womens Work festival of performing and visual arts created by women. Running through Sunday October 6, the festival spans a wide range of styles and genres to offer a completely different program at every performance: poetry and storytelling, stand-up comedy, one-woman shows, readings of plays and musicals, dance, music, film and a display of art works in the theater.
Single tickets to Womens Work are just $10 each; a $30 mini-pass offers admission to any four performances; and the $60 Festival Pass is good for admission to all shows. With the support of individual donors and ticket buyers, the company is proud to compensate the presenting artists for their appearances: $6 of every $10 in ticket sales goes to the presenters.
