SEE IT: James Brown famously sang, “It’s a man’s world, but it wouldn’t be nothing without a woman or a girl.” And if all the world truly is a stage, then the stage wouldn’t be nothing without the contributions of the fairer sex. To that end, Arizona Women’s Theatre Company in Phoenix will present 14 plays, ranging from comedies to suspense, penned by Arizona women playwrights. The works will be presented over three evening shows and one matinee at the Eighth Annual Pandora Festival of New Works.

Over a four-day period, a mix of 10-minute plays, 45-minute one-act plays and two full-length plays will be performed. Michelle McFadden, who won a regional award for her “unconventional romance” show Fred and Mary, will return this year. Other featured playwrights include Robin Kramme, Bernadette LaMazza and Mary Caroline Rogers. See them this month from January 29-February 1. Tickets ($13) can be purchased online.
