Yesterday I was reading Interesting Literature’s 10 of the Best Plays by Women Dramatists (a fantastic list!) and I came to the really depressing realization that I’ve only ever read one play written by a woman (An Iliad by Lisa Peterson). At first I’m thinking ‘that’s not possible, is it?’ because I read quite a lot of plays, but after combing through my list a few times, I realized that it’s sadly the truth. 39/58 of the books I’ve read so far this year have been by women – that’s a trend I’d like to keep up.
So, I’m here to ask for recommendations of your favorite plays written by women! The only two on my list so far are Posh by Laura Wade and The Last Wife by Kate Hennig. I’m open to all genres, time periods, etc. Thanks!
