New Theatre dared a group of Sydney playwrights to dream up a series of plays dealing with women's shifting role in politics, society and culture, and they created Women, Power & Culture — Then and Now.

Vanessa Bates, Verity Laughton, Katie Pollock, Gina Schien, Kathryn Yuen tackled 'Then', while Van Badham, Zoe Hogan, Maxine Mellor, Suzie Miller, Alana Valentine took on 'Now'. Over two weeks at New Theatre in Newtown, 12 successive plays will pay tribute to women's triumphs and struggles since they first gained the right to vote at the turn of the 20th century.

Australian women have made a lot happen since getting that vote, and this will be serious and smutty, gutsy and gorgeous, general yet specific theatre. Go support the staging of contemporary plays that affirm the importance of women’s thoughts and emotions — past, present and beyond.
