Layer Cake Workshops

The Layer Cake Workshop is a program that helps playwrights with specific projects that Live Girls! has committed to fully produce.  With intimate readings followed by talk-backs, Layer Cake Readings give audiences a unique opportunity to be directly involved in the shaping of new plays that they know will be part of future Live Girls! seasons.

SHORTS! (not the kind you wear)

Our annual short play festival Quickies features 10-minute plays that pack a punch, but where do those plays come from!? Live Girls! curates work from local (and sometimes not-so-local) female playwrights, often based on pre-determined themes.

Emerald City by S.P. Miskowski
A haunting love note/breakup letter to Seattle

Triggered by a conversation between S.P. Miskowski and Live Girls! Artistic Director Meghan Arnette about the changing cultural identity of Seattle, Emerald City is a haunting love note/ break up letter to the city. Miskowski artfully connects the past and the present as she weaves together history and a personal tale of longing, urban identity and change.
