Project Description

3Girls Theatre (3GT) develops, promotes and presents new plays by Bay Area women playwrights. Fewer than 30% of new plays produced by American mainstream theatre in any given year are written by women. 3GT was founded in 2011 to challenge the cultural bias that favors men’s voices over women’s on stage.

3GT provides an artistic home for Bay Area women playwrights at all stages of their creative and professional process. We achieve this goal through our distinctive development and performance programs, each aimed at engaging and supporting different communities of women playwrights in the San Francisco Bay Area. These programs develop new plays written by Bay Area women for both traditional and experimental theatre, nurture women and girls ranging in age from 11-90+, and empower women of color and LBTQ+ playwrights. Hundreds of Bay Area artists – across ages, perspectives, and genders – now collaborate each year with 3GT to “put women’s work onstage, where it belongs.”
