Looking for Lilith Theatre Company is a women’s ensemble that creates productions and programming through re-examining history and interrogating today from women’s perspectives, a practice that frequently uncovers unheard voices. LFL productions and programming serve adults, youth and children locally, nationally and internationally.

SUMMER DRAMA CAMP FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS
GirlSpeak gives girls an opportunity to learn about theatre as well as to find their own voices, work together in a group, and to use critical-thinking skills. Middle school girls will work with Looking for Lilith artists to decide on a topic or issue around which to create a play. Participating in collaborative play-making activities, they will create their own play to be shared in a staged reading at the end of the two weeks.
Discover LFL's expansive outreach program that includes residencies, after-school programs, summer camps, touring productions and projects with students from kindergarten to college, and adults, including our award-winning production of CHOICES: an interactive play on cyberbullying and suicide.
Explore the history behind our Fall production of UnCaged/Desenjualadas. This collaboration began in 2004 with LFL artists traveling to Guatemala to teach Guatemalan women theatre activities LFL uses to create their original theatre pieces. Together they then used these activities to explore personal stories of gender-based inequities in power in their communities' leadership. As the Guatemalan participants discovered they had a valuable tool of transformation, they pushed to expand the work to address broader social justice issues as well.
