“Meet Spicy Witch Productions, a company even cooler than its name already makes it seem…in short: this is everything we could possibly want in a theater company.” – Pride.com

Spicy Witch Productions is a New York-based nonprofit organization that explores gender and identity through the pairing of classical and contemporary plays in repertory. Dedicated to creating roles for women on and offstage, Spicy Witch aims to help close the gender gap in theater and to use the conversation between classical and contemporary text to initiate a dialogue and be a catalyst for social change. They are dedicated to creating meaningful opportunities for women, trans, and gender non-conforming theater artists, extending to roles in technical theater and administration as well as in their artistic staff. Their programming includes a Writer-in-Residence program, which helps to foster the work of an emerging female writer over the course of the year.
