Remarkable – Deeply Compelling – Unforgettable - Artemisia is a proud Actors’ Equity Association Theatre producing female-driven plays (new works with “women at the core.”) The audience is engaged directly in Artemisia’s mission through an annual FALL FESTIVAL. Six groundbreaking, female-empowering plays are presented as staged readings and the audience favorite is fully produced as a premiere production during the following season. In just six years, Artemisia has produced thirty-five plays during its annual Fall Festivals, five world premieres chosen by audience vote, and a feminist Shakespeare. In 2015, BELFAST GIRLS earned raves from critics and audience alike and set the bar high for CHEWING ON BECKETT in 2016 and VISITING in 2017 - both productions were hailed as “heart-wrenching perfection.” Artemisia is in residence at the Edge Theater, a beautiful 119-seat performance venue in Chicago, where Artemisia Fall Festival 2017 will be followed by the Midwest premiere of SWEET TEXAS RECKONING, by award-winning playwright Traci Godfrey.
