The SheATL Festival is Going Digital in 2020!
- What types of shows are these?
- How will they be presented?
- How do I get tickets?
- Can I see more than one show?
- Can I see shows not in my home city?
- How do I support the writers?
Same as the in-theater She festivals you know and love, these performances will be full-length plays and musicals by women writers.
These will be pre-recorded performances live streamed to a private Youtube link. Exactly how they're recorded will be up to the writer and actors -- some may be Zoom-style readings, others will be more film-edited, and others will be recordings of the shows in theaters or rehearsal studios from before the pandemic. But they are all incredible stories that we know you'll enjoy regardless of what the format is!
Tickets are on sale through Eventbrite! A $5 donation is required to register to watch the livestream. After you register on Eventbrite, you'll be sent a private link to watch the stream on YouTube just before the event is set to begin.
Of course! You can make individual $5 donations for each performance you want to see, or you can buy a $30 All-Access Pass that lets you stream as many shows as you want.
This is what we're most excited for with our digital festival -- no matter where you are in the world, you can watch! Just note that the streaming start times will be in the local time zone for each festival. The All-Access Pass will allow you to see all 16 shows in all 3 cities.
Each performance will have an option for you to buy a $10 Tip The Writer ticket. If you choose this price level, the extra $5 goes straight to the writer!
The 2020 SheATL Summer Theater Festival Shows

After a colleague discovers an incriminating note, the newly appointed principal of a prestigious private academy confronts the student believed to be responsible. But as more layers are revealed, she finds herself questioning the motives of everyone involved — as well as her own loyalties. Tough Love is a full-length straight play that examines the lines between condemnation and compassion, and how these lines fluctuate depending on our level of authority and our personal incentives.
