The Bechdel Test Fest


The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre is partnering with Tempe Center for the Arts to offer The Bechdel Test Fest, Saturday and Sunday, 9/9 and 9/10 at Tempe Center for the Arts. Festival offerings include a panel discussion, play readings, film screenings, children's workshops, music, and more! Plays and films pass the Bechdel Test: Two female-identifying characters who have a conversation with each other about something other than a man.

Events range from free to $10 with discounts for more tickets purchased.

*** All ticket prices do NOT reflect service fees (which are greater online than at the box office)

Children's workshops, taught by valley professionals, will be available on site for kids 5-8 (fully potty trained, please) from 2-4 on Saturday and 12-2 on Sunday (pending enrollment). Cost is $10/child for the 2-hour workshop.
