For the ninth year in a row, Tennessee Women’s Theater Project returns to the Looby Theater with its annual Women’s Work festival of performing and visual arts created by women. Running through Sunday May 24,Women's Work cuts a broad swathe across styles and genres to offer eleven completely different programs: poetry and essays; staged readings of new plays; film, dance, music and a display of visual art works. Individual tickets are $10, and a Festival Pass good for admission to all 11 shows is just $50. 60% of ticket revenue goes toward compensating the presenting artists. Women's Work is presented with the support of Season Sponsor HCA TriStar Health, and grants from Metro Nashville Arts Commission, Tennessee Arts Commission and The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
