Welcome to Female Arts

Promoting Gender Equality - Women are not equally represented in the arts – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 45 on TV and in theatre, to a glass ceiling for senior roles in business, to unequal pay. Female Arts promote women in interviews, reviews and news to redress this gender imbalance. We're interested in the performing, visual and literary arts with the focus on women including theatre, exhibitions, film, literature, comedy, music, women in business, in the UK and beyond. We support #allwomen and would like to see more women of colour, disability, and LGBTQI in the media. We welcome supportive men. #genderequality Read more About Us our Review Team and Associate Artists and please Support Us. If you'd like us to share with our readers what you're involved in please read our Review FAQ's then email your press release to Wendy Thomson editor@femalearts.com.

This Is Not A Christmas Play, Top Secret Comedy Club

Shane Black, screenwriter of The Long Kiss Goodnight and many action films from the late ‘80s and ‘90s once said that the best stories during the festive season aren’t about Christmas specifically, but take place during that time. There’s something about the end of the year, when it acts as a prism for the best and worst that life has to offer, that is fertile ground for comedy and drama. This being the case, Encompass Productions have developed this alternative Christmas play that avoids all the clichés regarding panto-esque comedies.
