New York City. I am reading a scene from one of my favorite plays, For The Love Of. Written by the incomparable Gina Femia. It’s a play about roller derby. It’s a play about 9 women. It’s a play about the women on the Brooklyn Scallywags roller derby team. Just come thru this play is ⚡️. OCT 25th at 5pm at Drama Book Shop. @harrythehoudini #repost from my homie @bkspidey 👇🏼 ・・・ Gina Femia, recipient of the 2018 Leah Ryan Prize for Emerging Female Playwrights and 2018 Doric Wilson Independent Playwright Award will be signing copies of her recently published play FOR THE LOVE OF (Or, The Roller Derby Play) at The Drama Book Shop on October 25th at 5PM. An excerpt from the play will be read by Sol Crespo, Stacey Raymond and Starr Kirkland and there will be a moderated discussion right after by Ashley Lauren Rogers. When Joy gets on the Brooklyn Scallywags and meets the star, Lizzie Lightning, she and her long term partner Michelle find their lives turned upside down. For The Love Of asks how much you're willing to sacrifice - or lose - in order to follow your heart. #womenintheatre#femaleplaywrights#dramatist#rollerderby#dramabookshop#thedramabookshop#readnewplays#buyaplay#newplays#lillyawards#independenttheatre#indietheatre#indietheatre#womenintheater#gothamgirlsrollerderby#gothamgirlsny#derbygirls#derbygirl

Our #wcw is Traci Godfrey, writer of SWEET TEXAS RECKONING, the #fallfest 2016 winner! SWEET TEXAS RECKONING received many other accolades, such as first place winner of the Works of Merit International Playwriting Contest, and Panndora Productions’s Playwriting Contest 2015 where it received exceptional reviews with the full production. It’s an amazing #feminist play dealing with the stigma around homophobia and also about family. Artemisia is putting it on in 2019, get excited for it!
