London Playwrights’ Workshop is teaming up with musical theatre writing team Barlow & Smith to support female songwriters.
In 2017, The Stage reported that male writers outnumber women 9:1 in the West End, and this initiative seeks to redress this imbalance.
The Women’s Musical Theatre Initiative will provide showcases and masterclasses to female writers in an attempt to create more equal representation in this field. (For more details please see this article in The Stage.) This launch evening will feature brilliant music and good fun – and both women and men are welcome and encouraged to attend!
The songwriter lineup includes: Rebecca Applin, Bella Barlow, Izo Fitzroy, Rosabella Gregory, Kate Marlais, Maimuna Memon, Zara Nunn, Susannah Pearse, A.C. Smith, Alex Young.
They will be joined by special guest Caroline Sheen (Mary Poppins, Helen Hayes Award).
Doors open at 6.30, show at 8.30pm.
All profits go to support the WMTI.
