    THML Theatre Company is about to launch our second season of theatre here in New York City!

    Between July 2018 and July 2019, we will increase the visibility of women in theatre by expanding our programming from our inaugural season. This season, we have created the following programs:

    • 29 Hour Readings : New Works by Women+
      • We are supporting readings of 4 brand new works by female or female-identifying* playwrights, composers, and lyricists. 
    • NYC Premiere Productions
      • We will be producing the New York City premiere of 4 brand new works by female or female-identifying* playwrights, composers, and lyricists. 
    • Pantsuit Parties
      • We will be continuing our quarterly event, The Pantsuit Party, where women and their supporters of all disciplines can come together for an evening of empowerment and networking. 
    • The Silver Reading Series
      • Every other month, we will host public play readings for mature actors; all plays will be selected to challenge stereotypes surrounding "getting old" with an aim to combat ageism in the theater. 
    • P.A.P. Smear Lecture Series
      • We are creating a lecture series designed specifically to bring female-identifying* Producers, Actors, and Playwrights together to share their knowledge and experiences as professionals in the theatre arts to others in the emerging theatre community. 
    • Arts in the Armed Forces
      • We will be supporting two female producers/directors working to bring the arts to military installations in remote areas of the world where arts programming does not exist on the military base. THML Theatre Co. will support these leaders with a producing packet and by providing administrative assistance stateside to assist with obtaining rights to productions and to mail physical scripts to the overseas installations. 


    *please note that this is inclusive of non-binary individuals as well, with a focus on providing opportunities for those who identify as women 


    Our mission for this season is to continue opening doors and closing the gap. 


    Our programming aims to provide opportunities for women in the "in-between" stages of artistic career development. THML Theatre Company provides a platform for new artists to have their works read or sung aloud, resources for artists with new work to be staged, and professional management for artists to see their new works come to fruition as a fully staged production. 


    THML Theatre Company is a majority-female lead theatre production  company.
