In 1978, Julia Miles founded the Women's Project & Productions and became its Artistic Director. Since then, her off-Broadway theatre has become the nation's preeminent venue for putting women playwrights center stage. As playwright and Women's Project board member Wendy Wasserstein attests: "Julia Miles has created a home for American women playwrights for 25 years. She has provided us with what has always been excruciatingly necessary in the American theatre landscape, a permanent presence for women playwrights. Julia has changed the face of American theatre."

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Women's Project, this collection presents six of the Project's most outstanding productions:

  • A...My Name is Alice (Joan Micklin Silver and Julianne Boyd)
  • Abingdon Square (Maria Irene Fornes)
  • Little Victories (Lavonne Mueller)
  • Etta Jenks (Marlane Meyer)
  • The Exact Center of the Universe (Joan Vail Thorne)
  • St. Lucy's Eyes (Bridgette Wimberly).
Also included in the volume is a short history of the WPP by Alexis Greene and an appendix of its production history.

Step into the world of entertaining and provocative stories written by women. Read the results of one woman's efforts to provide women theatre artists with a voice-and a room-of their own.
