Laugh. Weep. Celebrate.

The Shattered Glass Project 2024 New Works Festival: New Voices, New Narratives is the culminating presentation by the participants in the Director and Playwright Incubator/Mentor Program. The Shattered Glass Project is unique in Seattle’s rich theatrical ecosystem, presenting a festival created by a cohort of women and non-binary directors and playwrights supporting one another through a year of skill building and play development workshops.

Ranging in style from lyrical to camp to realism, the four plays elevate new and diverse voices re-examining traditional narratives and socially relevant topics through the powerful medium of theater.

The Plays:

Episode One, Voices Spitting Out the Rainbow.
