In 1993, LAWTF filled a void in the community as the only Annual Festival of its kind by
presenting multicultural and multi-disciplined solo women's works in Los Angeles. The first
Festival was produced in March, 1994 at the Los Angeles Theatre Center to coincide with
Women's History Month. LAWTF now has the internationally-recognized distinction of remaining
the oldest and most respected Annual Solo Festival in the greater Los Angeles community.
Now in its 27th year, LAWTF has continued to grow. and expand. Performers have joined hands
from Africa, India, Russia, Brazil, England, Canada, France, Australia and the Netherlands.
