Beer and theater: what could be better?! See four world premiere and East Coast premiere plays by some talented female playwrights across the United States! Dating, bribing, death, and everything in between, 4PLAY promises a fun evening that will not disappoint!




"4PLAY" is a compilation of four short plays ("A Date with Howie", "Blink", "Karma", and "Dog Days") by female playwrights from across the country. These four productions range from the humorous, with the DMV being purgatory and the hopelessness of awkward people dating, to the dramatic of a man haunted by women he has killed, to the nostalgic of how to age gracefully. This production is done to further the Crack The Glass Theatre mission of showcasing women in the arts.

59 regional theatres will not be producing a single play by a woman on their main stages for the 2012/13 season.


Did you know:

A woman didn’t win best director until 1998.


Did you know:

In 1908/09, only 12.8% of the productions on Broadway were by women playwrights. Some 100 years later, the percentage of major New York productions written by women was 12.6%.


AND Did you know:

As much as 70% of currently published works have majority male casts. Through this production and many more we work to balance out the numbers by providing the greater public with clever, engaging, and creative plays written by women!
