Tax deductible
We are kicking off our 2023-2024 Fundraising campaign with the goal to raise $40,000 to continue our mission to support and celebrate women+ playwrights!

We are also so excited to announce an anonymous donor will match up to $20,000! Potentially DOUBLING YOUR IMPACT on this small, but fierce organization!

3GT was founded in 2011 for the express purpose of challenging the cultural bias that favors men’s voices over women’s on stage. At that time, fewer than 20% of plays produced by the American mainstream theatre establishment in any given year were written by women. Although change was afoot, in 2017 industry watchdog Theatre Communications Group noted “when it comes to the status of female playwrights in the American theatre, the long arc of history is bending toward parity-but so slowly, almost imperceptibly, that you’d be forgiven for despairing.” But recent data is more optimistic. Despite the Dramatists Guild’s findings that as of 2018, national production of plays by women overall is still languishing below 30% , TCG says the percentage of new plays by women getting production “has leapt breathtakingly in recent years.” 3GT is a part of that leap!

3GT started with a single project, the Salon Reading Series: monthly staged readings of new plays written by a small cohort of seasoned Bay Area women playwrights “in their prime.” Under the leadership of Executive Artistic Director and Founding Playwright AJ Baker, 3GT has grown into a company that offers development opportunities to an ever-expanding group of women theatre-makers who reflect the uniqueness and diversity of our region. Our programs now include readings, works-in-progress, full productions and a New Works Festival drawn from five development projects: the Salon Series, GirlWrights, LezWritesBTQ, 3GT Innovators, and 3GT Investigates.

In 2021, 3GT underwent major changes as Executive Artistic Director AJ Baker retired and in her place, a shared Leadership Model was formed and crafted around the challenges the company was facing both from adjustments and changes in the personnel to support this major change as well as confronting the financial hardships that have affected American Theatre as a whole.

To create a sustainable space for our cohorts to create, we have combined LezWritesBTQ and Salon Series into one Program: 3GT Reading Series. These two programs were increasingly intersectional over the past few seasons, so 3GT's Leadership Circle took this opportunity to bring these two programs together to give them more robust access to the time and resources we have to support our writers. We are asking for your help in continuing our mission of "putting women's work onstage, where it belongs"!
