The Second Annual

Liz Smith Reading Series

Celebrating Women’s History Month

The 2019 Liz Smith Reading brought together five women  playwrights sharing their new  provocative and hilarious plays. These women gave us stories of people like us, dealing with  themes of race, violence against women, outsourcing of labor, and the disparity between wealth and happiness.
