Keegan Theatre, a professional, non-equity theatre in Washington, DC, is accepting submissions for its 2019 WOMXN on Fire Festival. The 2019 Festival will include ten minute plays, one acts, and solo shows curated into pods. Each pod will receive multiple performance slots throughout the week-long Festival.
EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSIONThe Keegan Theatre believes that Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are essential in the open and honest exploration of the human condition. Through a commitment to these tenets in casting, staffing, and the selection of works, Keegan aims to enrich our world through art and action.
WHY THE X?We use the word womxn for two reasons; to define ourselves for ourselves and not in relation to men, and to celebrate trans and gender non-conforming folks within this festival, as we recognize that the future is non-binary.
