Women’s HERstory Month 2022


Thank you for your submissions.  We have reached the limit and the submissions window is now closed.

We received some wonderful pieces and will get back to the playwrights we’ve chosen by December 15.



Women’s HERstory Month (WHM) is The Actors Studio of Newburyport’s month-long celebration of National Women’s History Month. Our goal is to educate and entertain, through original programming, as we showcase the contributions of women throughout history.
As part of this important endeavor, we are seeking submissions from female writers for 10-minute plays or monologues, for a March, 2022, WHM weekend of performances. Submissions can feature women in all walks of life: medicine, business, aviation, politics, law, literature, homemaker, student, etc.
We will consider the first 50 submissions prior to the October 15, 2021, deadline. The submission committee will choose five pieces, from the submissions, for the performances.
