PWTF 2022 Festival: head + heART


Philadelphia Women’s Theatre Festival (PWTF) begins its annual play festival on August 4 and ends on August 7. This year’s festival showcases seven new plays by Philadelphia playwrights all aimed at breaking down the stigma that surrounds the discussion and treatment of mental illnesses. This powerful line-up offers stories of loss, love, and ultimately hope that is sorely needed in a community struggling to recover from the emotional and psychological effects of a pandemic. In a revolutionary manner the shows aim to increase “awareness around isolation, invisibility, and stigmas.” This year’s festival is set to take place at the Arden Hamilton Family Arts Center: 62 N. St. Philadelphia, PA 19106. The lineup includes play readings, a wellness fair, and a workshop. See website for details and tickets.
