LezFest raises money for PFP’s LezPlay program celebrating works written and/or performed by women with lesbian characters and themes. Two of PFP’s full productions in 2016 – Raggedy And by David Valdes Greenwood directed by Cecilie Keenan, and Resolution by Nancy Nyman and Heather McNama (which won PFP’s LezPlay Contest in 2015) and is directed by Charlie Marie McGrath will be fully staged world premieres that fall under the LezPlay umbrella.

PFP’s LezPlay Incubator meets on the first Sunday of each month, and artists interested in participating in the development of new lesbian work are invited to attend. Email for additional information.

PFP is also hosting the LezPlay Queer Bits Film Festival at Public House Theater in February. Film makers interested in submitting a short work with lesbian character or themes that are written and/or directed by a woman may submit their film through by January 15.

PFP’s LezPlay Weekend is September 2016 at Center On Halsted and features plays, and performances celebrating works for the stage or screen written by women with lesbian characters or themes.
