Amazon.com: Out of Time & Place: An Anthology of Plays by Members of the Women’s Project Playwrights Lab, Volume 1 (9780578060163): Alexis Clements, Christine Evans: Books.

In The Archive and The Repertoire, Diana Taylor makes the excellent point that what’s archived (as distinct from in rep or on stage) remains in historical memory and accessible to wider audiences across space and time.  This is one of the reasons we decided to anthologize the work of the 2008-2010 Women’s Project Playwrights’ Lab. 

A shout-out to my amazing co-editor (and book producer) Alexis Clements for getting these lovely books out into the world, and to all the writers for their plays.  If you’re teaching contemporary plays and looking for more robust representation of women playwrights, these two anthologies are a good starting point.
