Theatre KAPOW
train. explore. challenge. inspire. create.

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women's constitutional right to vote. The arts are uniquely capable of commenting on and providing context for major developments in human history. So, artists all over the country will be celebrating this milestone in the coming year. tKAPOW believes that this anniversary provides a perfect opportunity to celebrate the contributions of female playwrights. While traditionally female playwrights are woefully underrepresented, our 12th season will exclusively feature female playwrights. As always, tKAPOW hopes that our work creates conversation and invites reflection. We are thrilled to present a season of work by women who really have something to say.

The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood
