About This Show

BECHDEL FEST is an evening of new, women-centric short plays featuring an all female-identifying cast talking about things other than men. 

Created by cartoonist Alison Bechdel, the now-famous Bechdel-Wallace Test asks three questions about works of narrative entertainment:

1) Does it feature at least two women?
2) Do they talk to each other?
3) Do they talk about anything other than a man?

Since it's first iteration in 2013, BECHDEL FEST has allowed Broken Nose Theatre to partner with some of the city's most outstanding artists to tell new and relevant women-centric stories that pass the Test with flying colors.
