…is happening in 2017, too!
In 2016, we had March to MARCH performances in Washington, Florida, Indiana, California, and overseas in Japan. But why stop there?
Get ready to organize your own reading or SEVEN event for 2017! And go ahead and partner up with SWAN Day!
The entire month of March 2017 is International Women’s Month. Celebrate with SEVEN, the acclaimed documentary play that features 7 extraordinary women who have changed the world.
Get ready for our 2017 March to MARCH!The March to MARCH is a grassroots movement to organize readings of SEVEN to inspire people worldwide to celebrate International Women’s Month by joining the campaign to stop violence toward women.
How can I participate in the March to MARCH?
- Organize a reading with a local organization, theatre, library, office, school – anywhere. Read it once or launch a marathon. Create a big event or a small, intimate gathering.
- Get a group together and read the play aloud. Invite male colleagues to join you if you like. Read it at your book club. You don’t have to be actors or celebrities or have any experience in theatre. Anyone can act these roles.
- Give a shout out to friends in other places to create their own March to MARCH event.
- Add a workshop, discussion, panel, or seminar. Raise awareness about:
- domestic violence
- human trafficking
- rape and silence
- attacks on migrant women
- the war on women’s reproductive rights
SEVEN celebrates remarkable women changing the world!
How do I join? Send us an email (via our website) and let us know you’ve organized a MARCH reading or performance of SEVEN. We’ll list it on our special March to MARCH calendar and announce it on social media. Plus we’ll provide you with the purple 7 logo to use on your publicity and programs. Coming soon: We’ll have buttons available with our brand new 7 logo on them!
And after that? Send us your photos, send us a blog report, and we’ll put you on our News page on http://www.seventheplay.com. Your performances will become part of a growing archive that focuses attention on the struggles women endure everywhere.
Are there royalties? For readings in your home or yard or workplace, where you’re not charging admission and the reading is among friends–not open to the public–there is no royalty fee. For readings open to the public, Dramatists Plays Service will license the play for a small fee based on a variety of factors including the size of the venue, the cost of the tickets, etc. You can contact Dramatists Play Service directly, or send us an email via Contact.
Copies of the play are available through Dramatists Play Service. See our website—http://www.seventheplay.com–to view different ways that these shows have been done from Tokyo to Cuenca (Ecuador) to Delhi to Seattle!
The women of SEVEN are associated with the Vital Voices Global Partnership; visit the VV website to see news of their activities.
