New Writing by and about Women Nurtured by Fallen Angel Theatre

For many years Fallen Angel Theatre Company has been a strong advocate and support for new writing by and about Irish and British Women.  We have served as a platform and a home for New York City based writers to develop and nurture their plays, including Barbara Hammond's Eva the Chaste from The Eva Trilogy and Honor Molloy's Maiden Voyages set in the Rotunda Hospital Dublin.  To continue with our nurturing mission we are formally announcing we have a new and more structured program in development. Full details of which will be announced soon.
To kickstart our project for our 2018/2019 Season we will be selecting a play by 2 different playwrights and host a developmental workshop with each writer.  Fallen Angel will provide a two day workshop with director, actors, dramaturg support, an especially invited audience for a private reading, all in a supportive, and nurturing environment.
The goal of this program will be to provide a mutually beneficial experience not only for Fallen Angel, but also for the selected recipients, giving writers an opportunity to work with an experienced New York City based off Broadway company. For more detail on this program please contact us at

By Women. For Women. Fallen Angel Theatre Company

By Women. For Women.

On March 8th 2018, we celebrate International Women’s Day.
Today, tenacious women and brave men from around the world raise their voices louder than ever
and join forces in the fight for our rights as women.

Today is a day that we recognize our own individual struggles, but also the battles braved
by the courageous women that went before us, the work they did to give us the opportunities
we have today. Inspirational women, both in history and today, should continue to inspire us to
achieve not only equality, but greatness. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and
activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist
nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights".
It’s true how the saying goes: “Traveling alone you’ll go faster, but traveling together you’ll get further”.

We hear of “The Pay Gap”, the “#MeToo”, “Time’s Up” and “PressForProgress” movements.
These movements remind the world that we won’t be silenced in fighting for what we believe in.  
That's why we celebrate a day like today. We must continue our support of women everywhere:
old women, young women, rich women, poor women, women of every colour, race, religion,
nationality, sexuality and everything in between. We fight together, for each other.

And today above all days, we at Fallen Angel Theatre ask you to support women in theatre
and all the hard work they do. Female directors, female playwrights, female actors,
we all work together to project our voice and stand up for what we believe in.

Happy International Women's Day everyone!

And don't forget to purchase tickets for our amazing show “My Brilliant Divorce”, featuring a ton of
incredible women: starring Melissa Gilbert, Directed by Aedín Moloney and written by Geraldine Aron.

How would you like to take a friend of yours to have Afternoon Tea in New York City, with Melissa Gilbert, star of Little House on the Prairie? If you were like so many of us as children, glued to the TV on a Sunday afternoon, waiting for the next episode of Little House on the Prairie to come on, you won't want to miss this once in a life time opportunity.  Laura Ingalls Wilder "Half Pint" aka Melissa Gilbert, was the fictional best friend of millions of little girls and boys worldwide.
I never dreamt as a child that I would one day not only meet Melissa Gilbert, but actually share a stage with her. In fact, she and I have been scene partner in The Dead 1904. She is a wonderful woman and a terrific actress.  So gracious and lovely to sit and chat with. Well now its your turn...
