Macha Monkey Productions

fearless, funny, female theatre

The Distillery

Macha Monkey supports and believes in fostering new plays and specifically new plays that feature strong female characters. Our Distillery series is an opportunity for playwrights to gain valuable feedback from Seattle audiences. It is also a platform for audiences to help shape new works in process. Every reading is followed by discussion of the play and a celebration of emerging pieces of theatre.

The Distillery is a free series. We do suggest a $5 donation at the door to help Macha Monkey pay for script copies and space rental. Thank you for supporting fearless, funny, female theatre!
