Hi... I'm a feminist actress living in Los Angeles and I need some help regarding a play. My friends and I want to put an original play up (or make a movie if we can get the money) with strong female characters. I could not find one in Samuel French bookstores so I'm asking for help. HELP!!!! I believe in combining both feminism and Hollywood (that is my goal). Any suggestions?? Love Peace & Feminism, Rose

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com --not to mention attempting to change the face of hollywood. My most obvious suggestion for a feminist play is The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. I say most obvious because the V-Day site linked from Feminist.com is related to The Vagina Monologues, so I would start there.

Other suggestions are to start with women friendly theatres--like La Mama in New York City, which has featured the work of Amy Sedaris, New York City's Public Theatre, which has been one of the many theatres to show the work of Anna Deavere Smith, and the New Georges Theatre, which is a women run theatre production company in New York City. There is also something to the effect of Women's Theatres and Productions by Julia Miles. I can't remember the exact name. I hope that helps-- good luck, but mostly enjoy.
