Venus embarks on our 17th year of women empowering plays (#59, 60, 61, and 62!) and we welcome and thank you for fair and well balanced coverage.

During my standard process of reading play submissions, a very dear friend was raped and killed over the Christmas holiday. Her name was Tricia McCauley and I loved her very much.

Over the past 20 years she was always right there cheering on my next bold idea. I can’t tell you how strange it will be to not have her holding a seat in the house this year, or in any year ahead. It’s devastating.

So, we are dedicating the whole year to her. Learn more about Tricia McCauley
