The Bechdel Group’s Fall Workshop Series

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)

We are delighted to present selections from:

Spinny, Twirly Things, by Claire Zajdel
"When fifteen year-old Violet and her friends learn that their coach is moving away, the stress of losing someone triggers unresolved issues, which for Violet may be something violent."


Hannah and the Archaeologist and the Deep Sea Diver and the Helicopterist Recall the Instance in Which Hannah Repaired the Roof, by Lauren D'Errico
"As Hannah reconnects with her childhood best friends, she is reminded once again of her problems with memory. While her friends reflect on the good times in detail, Hannah consults an archaeologist, a deep sea diver, and a helicopterist for help to remember just one moment."

The Bechdel Group’s Workshop Series is a series of readings and discussions around new work in progress. We invite all actors, directors, dramaturgs, playwrights, and theatre lovers to join us for a festive, friendly, informal community evening of discussion around new work.

The Bechdel Group is a New York City based group that hosts a series of readings and discussions of new work and works in progress. Our mission is to challenge the accepted portrayal of women on stage. Our goals are to: promote writers writing for women, create more roles for women, and foster an active and engaged community of actors, playwrights, directors, dramaturgs, and theatre lovers.
