Broken Nose Theatre presents this year's celebration of short plays featuring, a la the famous "Bechdel Rule" from cartoonist Alison Bechdel, "an ensemble of femme, female-identifying, non-binary, trans and queer actors talking about things other than men." Most, though not all, of the pieces are also written by women, nonbinary, or femme-identified authors. A new piece will be released each Friday on YouTube, replacing the previous week's offering. The lineup is as follows:

Friday, January 29: Cowabunga by Jamie Olah, directed by Lauren Katz

Friday, February 5: The High, by Brynne Frauenhoffer, directed by Lexi Saunders

Friday, February 12: How Strong is Your Tree Pose?, by Asha McAllister, directed by Brenda Scott Wlazlo
