DIVAFEST HISTORY & PURPOSE

DivaFest is a juried playwrighting festival presented by IndyFringe. Nationally, only 19% of published plays have been written by women. We have been working to change that over the past 10 years.

Why this matters: 

50/50 is still a long ways off 

According to a survey by American Theatre magazine, just 21% of plays presented by regional theater companies in the 2015-16 season had female authors. In the magazine's 2017 survey, they reported that the number had increased to 26%.
