LEZWRITES! is a project of 3Girls Theatre Company that produces readings and performances of short works by lesbian, bi and trans playwrights of all races, ethnicities, and ages. This year’s selections will be curated by a literary panel including 3GT Resident Playwright and Producer, Margery Kreitman, and playwright and Associate Producer, Mercilee Jenkins, published in The Best American Short Plays 2014-2015, and two special guest curators: Tina D’Elia, an award-winning casting director and solo performer whose shows include The Rita Hayworth of this Generation; and Thao P. Nguyen, author/performer of Fortunate Daughter, named one of the Top 10 Bay Area Plays of 2013.

For each show, LEZWRITES! solicits work by putting out a call for LBT writers to submit short, humorous or dramatic pieces on a specific themes from the viewpoint of the lesbian experience. This enables lesbian writers to become visible as vital and enriching voices in the larger theater community.
