FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

 ONION MAN PRODUCTIONS JOIN NATIONWIDE “THE FUTURE IS FEMALE FESTIVAL” CELEBRATING WOMEN AT ITS HOME IN CHAMBLEE, GEORGIA ON MARCH 17TH AND 18TH.

 


Onion Man productions will join theaters, playwrights, directors and actors throughout the US and Canada who have united during Women’s History Month to present THE FUTURE IS FEMALE FESTIVAL, a series of staged readings and productions of 10-minute plays written by women of all backgrounds on the subject “The Future is Female” and what that means to them.

 “Instead of spending March celebrating women’s history, we’ll celebrate women’s futures,” says festival creator and writer Mya Kagan of New York.

 Onion Man Productions will present “THE FUTURE IS FEMALE FESTIVAL” at 5522 New Peachtree Road, Ste. 111 on March 17th and 18th at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are available at www.onionmanproductions.com. The price is $10. Net proceeds to benefit Raksha, a non profit dedicated to serving Georgia's South Asian community and ensuring healing, empowerment and justice to South Asian survivors of domestic and sexual violence. For further information, please contact: Natasha Patel (646) 522-6880, Artistic Director of the Festival.

 The local festival outpost includes plays by Laura King, winner of the 2016 SETC/Ready to Publish Award, Amber Bradshaw, Managing Artistic Director of Working Title Playwrights, Donna Latham, a Kennedy Center Finalist, David Mark Cohen Playwriting Award, Beverly Austin, Emma Harr, Allie Costa, and Connie Schindewolf, and performances by Melissa Rainey, a MAT nominee, Daryl Fazio, of Synchronicity Theater and Found Stages, Jillian Walzer, Erika Ragsdale, Joshua Mikel, Kerwin Thompson, Peter Hardy and directed by Rebekah Suellau of The Weird Sisters Theater Project.

 The FUTURE IS FEMALE FESTIVAL will have 26 outposts in 18 cities across the US and Canada: NYC; Chicago; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Philadelphia; Washington DC; Houston; Atlanta; Miami; Carbondale, IL; Clay County, FL; Long Island, NY; Rhinecliff, NY; Omaha, NE; Allentown, PA; Santa Maria, CA; Calgary, Canada. Most outposts will donate a portion of their proceeds to charities of their own choice. Alternately, they offer free or pay-what-you-can tickets.

 In addition, the Festival has launched another way to participate: Anyone can create a pop-up festival using 10-minute plays available for download through the festival website.

 “It’s a way for people to be involved throughout the festival month even if there isn’t an outpost event near them. They can sign up on our website and invite friends over to have a casual play reading in their own living rooms, church basement or college dorm,” says Kagan.

 

The nationwide festival was built by three women: Creator & Producer Mya Kagan, Co-Producer Lauren Orkus, and Social Media Manager Sarah Cosgrove. The trio volunteered their time out of the desire to do something actionable and positive for fellow women artists and women themselves, at a time when it seemed more necessary than ever.
