Bechdel Tank Oct 29 .jpg


We are delighted to present selections from

Shadow Play, by William Duell "A reporter for her mega-church's magazine interviews her next assignment, allegedly the oldest living American, and an unequivocal atheist."


The Rule of Thirds, by Jacqueline Bircher "Years after the death of their mother, sisters Leslie and Stef return to Staten Island to clean out the childhood home their widowed father left behind. When their estranged younger sister Christine arrives to claim her share of the estate, the three women find themselves unearthing not just family heirlooms, but the deep secrets and harsh realities of their past lives and decisions."

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.
