17Percent was set up by playwright Sam Hall in 2009. "While taking writing courses, including an MA in Creative Writing, she noticed... the majority of the plays studied on these courses were written by men; the majority of plays performed at UK theatres are written by men. So Sam began to ask herself ‘why weren’t all those women who set out studying playwriting going on to have work performed and published?’ The answer is incredibly complex and spans borders." Quote from 17percent About page.

We're interviewing Sam Hall soon so watch this space!
