5th Wall Theatre and TheatreLAB are teaming up to co-produce the Women’s Theatre Festival beginning 3/27.

 

TheatreLAB and 5th Wall Theatre, in association with The Heritage Ensemble Theatre Company, the Weinstein JCC and Cadence Theatre Company, will bring stories of women overcoming strife, finding their voice, and making their place in the world. The festival also brings together an outstanding all-female production team.
