Contemporary Plays by African Women

Contemporary Plays by African Women


When did you last watch a play written by an African woman? Have you ever read one?

There has only ever been one published collection of plays written by African women - that was ten years ago – this collection marks the second. The African Women Playwright’s Network welcomes you to readings of plays from the collection.

This free event is supported by Oxford Playhouse, Belgrade Theatre and the University of Warwick.

Duration: 2 hours with no interval
