The International Centre for Women Playwrights


The mission of ICWP (International Centre for Women Playwrights) is to support women playwrights around the world by:

  • bringing international attention to their achievements

  • encouraging production of their plays, translation, publication, and international distributions of their works

  • providing means for communication and contact among the sister community of the world's women dramatists

  • assisting them in developing the tools of their craft, in determining their own artistic forms, and in setting their own critical standards

  • encouraging scholarly and critical examination and study of the history and the contemporary work and concerns of women playwrights

  • supporting their efforts to gain professional equality, and to express their own personal, artistic, social, and political vision without censorship, harassment, or personal danger.
