A Woman’s Place Is on the Stage

From Jan. 8 through 31, The Vortex (2004 1/2 Central SE) hosts the national playwriting festival Womensworx. Eight 10-minute plays by female writers will be staged by female directors and compete for awards for best play and audience favorite, though the spirit is less one of competition and more one of collaboration. One of the plays is by Albuquerque's own Kate Horsley, CNM instructor and author of Confessions of a Pagan Nun. Catch Womensworx Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15, with a preview on Thursday, Jan. 7, at 8 p.m. for $7. Purchase tickets at or cal 247-8600.
