Established in 1989, The International Centre for Women Playwrights is an organization that exists to bring attention to the achievements of women playwrights and to provide a place for peer support, knowledge-sharing, and play publication. It is the goal of ICWP to enable women playwrights to have their plays professionally produced on the major stages of world theatres and to receive just recompense for their efforts. When the numbers are no longer tragically skewed against women, we will no longer be needed. We work for that day!
