Venus is reading plays now through January 4th for consideration in the 2016 season. We are excited to announce the new season at the end of January.

Our Feral15 season has wrapped and we are proud to say we have produced 54 woman empowering plays over the past 15 years. 

2015 saw five Venus premieres go into publication around the globe:

Light of Night by Cecilia Copeland, New York Madness

Zelda at the Oasis by Pat Lin, Samuel French

No. 731 deGraw Street-brooklyn or Emily Dickinsons Sister by Claudia Barnett, Carnagie Mellon Press

Virus Attacks Heart by Shannon Murdoch, Original Works Australia

Play Nice by Robin Rice Lichtig, New Play Exchange

Venus is also cheering for Devil Dog Six by Fengar Gael as it gets its midwest premiere in 2016.

We look forward to taking our audiences on compelling adventures where women are viewed as powerful. We applaud your part in keeping our space safe for women. It is in this safe space that we can explore new worlds. 

We are now seeking 20 groups of 10 for advanced ticket sales going into the 2016 season.

Contact if you'd like to be in the loop.

Keep Creating Everybody!
