History Matters/Back to the Future promotes the study and production of women’s plays of the past in colleges and universities and theatres throughout the country and encourages responses to those plays from contemporary playwrights.
WHY DO WE DO IT?
BECAUSE IT SHOULD BE COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE HAVE BEEN AWARD-WINNING WOMEN PLAYWRIGHTS THROUGHOUT HISTORY AND THEY DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED AND CELEBRATED. BECAUSE THERE IS A TREASURY OF WOMEN'S PLAYS BURIED IN THE PAST THAT WILL ENRICH THE FUTURE.
