The Women’s Work Festival was begun in 2007 by She Said Yes!, RCA Theatre Company and White Rooster Theatre, as a developmental festival for women playwrights, in celebration of International Women’s Week. The festival has since seen playwrights from Canada, the US, and Turkey come to St. John’s for workshops and staged readings of their work with professional actors and dramaturgs. The festival has also expanded to include workshops, panel discussions and interviews with directors and playwrights.

The festival became a stand-alone entity in 2014. You can check out all the details on the festival at
