2Cents is a young not for profit theater company in Hollywood, fiscally partnered with The Los Angeles Women's Theatre Project. The wonderful women of LAWTP inspired this venture, with their dedication to the often overlooked female playwright. We spend several months reading submitted plays by women, and in the end come to a selection of around 20 beautiful works, all unique and varied in subject, theme, characters, everything. Each year, our collection of plays for INK Fest is meant to represent the female artist as versatile, unpredictable, and ultimately undefinable.

Thank you & enjoy the ART!
