How it all began...
On one of the first sunny days in February of 2017, an audition for 3 Musketeers was being held in a circus warehouse. The breakdown called for actor combatants of all shapes and sizes to create a cast of fourteen.
The number of roles for women?
Two women attending this audition were Kaitlyn Farley and Sophie Moshofsky.
By chance they left the building at the same time. A small wave and a smile turned to a walking conversation turned to talking shop, for two hours. Topics covered: the industry, plays, and badass women. (This shop talk definitely passed the Bechdel test.)
A week later, they were in a production meeting for their first play, and Fight the Good Fight was created.
What we do...
We jumped without a second thought to create work for ourselves, other women and people underrepresented in the arts because historically, we haven't been invited to the table.
So we build our own table.
How? We create. We make theatre and film with:
Women focused stories
People of all different perspectives to represent the real world we live in.
WE ARE A PRODUCTION TEAM WHO FIGHTS TO CREATE SPACE FOR WOMEN IN THEATRE AND FILM.
That is our mission. And really, we just want to tell some cool stories.
Keep up the good fight.
Kaitlyn and Sophie
