  1. Hello Priscila,

    Rachel Birnbaum referred me.

    My name is Elizabeth Wine and I’m the Artistic Director of Medicine Show Theatre LAB, a unit of the Medicine Show Theatre, one of NYC’s oldest experimental theatres – 50 in two years.

    We’re doing our first Queer Fest this Christmas. It’ll be a Queer Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Yule/whatever you celebrate. (We were originally going to do it in June, but several of the young queer artists we’ve spoken with have said they felt really stretched in June with all the events in town, and would love to see something at another time in the year. So we listened and moved it.)

    We are having more trouble than I’d have thought finding good upcoming female, or female-identifying playwrights. Like every other aspect of life, the men put their hands up first. Am up to my eyeballs in plain vanilla gay men. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but I feel like thanks to Will & Grace et al. they’ve been mainstreaming for some time now. We wanted to give a voice to folks all along the queer spectrum. But first, we have to find them.

    Rachel recommended you strongly. I was wondering if you had any work you’d care to share.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    All my best,
    Elizabeth Wine
