WOMEN OF 4G

SUMMER 2019

Seventy-five years in the future, an all-female crew and their male captain depart on what appears to be a routine mission to Mars until the captain is murdered and the real mission comes to light. Part murder mystery, part space thriller, Women of 4G uses a science fiction world to ask questions about women in power as well as their leadership, responsibility and, ultimately, sacrifice.

THE DUCHESS OF MALFI

SPRING 2020

When the Duchess of Malfi dares to love honestly, openly, & defiantly, the men in her family do everything in their power to break those that would dare to flout the rules of a hetero-normative, patriarchal society. Babes With Blades takes on John Websters classic revenge tragedy as only they can.
