During Shakespeare’s time, there were no women in the acting companies and boys played their roles on stage. It wasn’t until the mid-17th century that women could perform for the public.
Writing Women is a screenplay development series focused on stories about women. Through September and October, screen writers have submitted their original short-film screenplays. 16 of these screenplays will be chosen and developed over two months, with the help of professional actors and mentors from Canada’s film and television industry.
