The BEATRICE TERRY RESIDENCY is designed exclusively for womxn-identified artists who both write AND direct their own work.* It is not intended for a director who would like to write a first play, or for a writer who has never or rarely directed...but rather, someone who identifies a place in both disciplines professionally and consistently. It is named for the acclaimed director-writer Beatrice Terry, whose career on and off-Broadway epitomized the duality at the core of this residency.
*This residency is named for Beatrice Terry, a female writer-director who pioneered her own approach to theatrical creation, as a writer and director of her own work in a cis male-dominated field. As such, this residency is only open to womxn, which includes cisgender, transwomen and feminine-identifying genderqueer and non-binary individuals. We ask that you interrogate and respect the goals of this residency and only apply if you have experienced this specific kind of gender-based adversity.
