WTF #2 - The Women's Theatre Festival

The Millibo is bringing back the Women’s Theatre Festival for its second year, to empower and engage artists and audiences.

#WTF will be a 3-week long festival with special events celebrating and promoting the work of Colorado Women Playwrights.

The mission of the WTF is to support the many talented women creating theater and performance art throughout Colorado by giving them a platform for their voices, their truths, and their stories.

This year, we are performing five plays and one poem:

Svetlana: Jane Fromme
