Theatrical Women in Boston and Beyond: The Women in Theatre Festival

In 1983 Sophie Parker and Tita Wernimont cofounded Watermelon Studio, Inc. (later Next Stage Theatre), a theatrical company in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, creating a venue in which local women theater professionals could present original work. It featured a women’s theatre festival, offering performances from a broad range of cultures and viewpoints.
