Bishop Arts Theatre is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Down for #TheCount, One-Act Play Festival, March 29-April 15, 2018. Down for #TheCount is a call to action for American theatre and the female community at large to celebrate the female voice and experience. This festival seeks to change those number of plays produced that are written by women locally and nationally and to give a platform to the voices and perspectives of women on the American stage. BATC has invited playwrights from all over the country including DFW local playwrights Mariam Olbaidullah Baig and Linda Jones and nationally recognized playwrights Ife Olujobi, Katherine Craft, Kristiana Rae Colon and Tsehaye Geralyn Hebert to feature their work on the BATC stage. The diversity of America featured on stage through the diversity of these playwrights promises to make this festival a night of provocative theatre.
