SheNYC Arts Presents

An off-Broadway run of two plays in rep by Festival Alumni Playwrights

the true story of five black nurses serving a country who wouldn’t serve them

In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, Mayvee, Georgia, Elinor, Majorie, and Thelma enlist to serve their country and are sent to Fort Huachuca, an army base camp in Arizona.

As Black nurses, they’re in charge of treating enemy prisoners of war. They quickly learn the rules of the camp: stay segregated from the white soldiers; in an emergency, always treat the white soldiers first; and remember that we’re all on the same team, fighting for the same country.  

Universal and real, this story tackles social issues that are still relevant today: racism and sexism. It’s an inside look at survival in the army in the 1940s, when society treated women and people of color as “less than”.

the city that never sleeps

is being put to the test

This deeply dark and acerbically funny mystery follows Reaver, a bone-tired Black coroner, as he investigates a city being torn apart by a gruesome plague – one that causes sleeplessness and spontaneous, explosive death.

Unreliably narrated, and accompanied by original music by The Mombs, BLOODSHOT is an alluring, distorted romp through a familiar city on the brink of a very human meltdown.

Find out who goes BLOODSHOT… and who’s unlucky enough to make it out alive.

About SheNYC Arts

We’re a femme-led 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that fights for gender equity in the arts & entertainment industry. We focus most of our support on the original creators — playwrights, composers, and producers — to get more women, trans, and non-binary people in these roles that decide which stories get told.

New Pages:

the SheNYC arts printing press

We’re so thrilled to announce our newest program: a publishing wing!

New Pages will feature the works of SheNYC, LA, and ATL Festival alumni playwrights, in softcover books that you can purchase when you need new material for your scene study classes, auditions, or are looking for plays to license for a production at your local theater.

Proceeds from the book are split between SheNYC and the playwrights in the anthology, so you’re supporting gender equity in the arts AND new playwrights at the same time!

If you’re interested in licensing one of the plays featured in the anthology, email info@shenycarts.org

The front cover of the book: NEW PAGES, an anthology of scenes and monologues by She NYC Theater Festival Shows. Volume 1.
