The Kilroys: THE LIST

This is a list of the 46 most recommended plays written by female playwrights. The Kilroys asked 127 theatre professionals from around the country to recommend the best female authored plays they have encountered in the past year. The list in its entirety has 300 nominated plays that were eligible. You can see the entire list here.

This is an interview that Polly Carl of HowlRound did with members of The Kilroys regarding “The List.” Read the interview here.

Even the New York Times picked up on the list here.

The Kilroys are a group of LA-based playwrights and producers who are tired of just talking about gender parity and “were ready to act.”
