PWTF 2018: Motherhood in Theatre

The Philadelphia Women's Theatre Festival celebrates motherhood!

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs for anyone and even harder for women in theatre. By dedicating our 2018 festival to motherhood in the arts and partnering with the Parent Arts Advocacy League, PWTF hopes to not only shine a light on the amazingly talented and hardworking mother artists in our field, but to create a world where motherhood is accepted, celebrated, and supported in the arts.
