On Saturday, 12/8, the Works by Women San Francisco Meetup Group hosted our second event – a performance of 3 Girls Squared. A group of 13 of us enjoyed this holiday showcase featuring nine wickedly funny original short plays written by 3 Girls Theatre resident and associate women playwrights. We chose this production because 3 Girls Theatre is a new and noteworthy company in the Bay Area, whose mission is to nurture, promote, and produce the work of local women playwrights. In addition to an all-female writing team, this production featured the work of 21 women theater artists and demonstrated female majority in directing, acting, and production.
