The International Centre for Women Playwrights is thrilled to report the extraordinary level of international support that is represented by the recipients for this year’s 50/50 Applause Awards, which sets out to recognize theatres that produced 50% or more women playwrights in their season of shows.
For the first time in the history of the awards, ICWP invited the public to nominate theatres that had produced the work of women playwrights throughout the world.
We are proud to announce 67 recipients from nine countries for the 2014 awards. The list includes theatres in Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, and the United States.
The full list of theatres , plays and playwrights can be viewed here.
There are fourteen repeat recipients who have demonstrated gender parity in more than one season. Meet some of the theaters in our multi-lingual video.
