The International Centre for Women Playwrights (ICWP) is thrilled to report that a record-breaking number of recipients will receive the 2016 50/50 Applause Awards, which recognizes theatres that produced 50% or more women playwrights in their 2015/16 season of shows. ICWP defines 50/50 by the number of qualifying performances in a theatre’s season. This allows a concrete measurement of the resources being devoted to women playwrights.
After previously receiving the award in our first year, we are thrilled that in our second year of existence The Bread & Roses Theatre has once again become a recipient of the award. Meet fellow winners of the 2016 award in the video below (we are at 3 min 57 sec).
