La Femme Theatre Productions is an all-inclusive theater company dedicated to the exploration and celebration of the universal female experience. Its mission is to highlight and clarify the experiences of all women, particularly but not exclusively those of adult women, through the texts of both women and men, particularly but not exclusively those of the classic American canon +ndash; and to investigate the lens through which both women and men view women. Accordingly, La Femme endeavors to engender stage, film, television, and digital media projects that probe those lenses. Moreover, La Femme seeks to produce works that not only feature significant roles for women but also examine the meaning of female identity in yesterday's, today's, and tomorrow's worlds. And, by presenting and sharing these stories of the female experience, La Femme hopes to encourage girls and women of all ages and backgrounds to follow their dreams +ndash; and "break ceilings." To help "break those ceilings," La Femme will act to mentor young women by providing professional internships.
