We’re incredibly proud to announce the eighth edition of our annual Bechdel Fest! As in past years, each of the brand-new short plays in Bechdel Fest 8: Realign pass The Bechdel-Wallace Test, meaning that these stories feature an ensemble of femme, female-identifying, non-binary, trans and genderqueer actors talking about things other than men.

Each play will stream for FREE on BNT’s YouTube channel, with a new play released each Friday for an entire week before it’s removed and a new play is broadcast.

A Mid-Pandemic Night's Stream
