Touch Me Philly Productions (www.TouchMePhilly.com) is now accepting submissions from Philadelphia area writers of short plays, one acts, or full length plays that specifically address feminist/womanist issues.
Selected works will be produced by TMPP in the late summer/early fall of 2017, here in Philadelphia. Chosen authors will receive a *small* stipend.
All works should have a performance time of 10-90 minutes and require a maximum of 5 actors.

– what it means to be a woman
– what it means to be a feminist/womanist
– creating intersectional feminism
– societal expectations
– our own roles as aggressors, victims, or bystanders
– body acceptance
