Babes With Blades Theatre Company's Fighting Words Festival

Saturday, May 19, 2018 - 12:00pm to Sunday, May 20, 2018 - 1:00pm

The Fighting Words Festival showcases three developing scripts via readings, all reflecting how women define themselves and their places in their worlds – including the English countryside, medieval Scotland and the “final frontier.” The “Origins” theme is included throughout BWBTC’s 20th Anniversary Season. “An origin story launches a character's journey,” said Co-Artistic Director Kathrynne Wolf. “It defines who they are, explains why they do the things they do, and informs how they go about making a difference. As we turn 20, BWBTC reflects on our own origins: a group of artists determined to expand the canon of women's roles and challenge audience expectations through the use of stage combat in our stories.
