Today's Guest: 20% Theater Companies executive director Claire Avitable talks with us about her innovative theater company. 20% Theater Company began after a 2002 study done by the New York Council on the Arts published that only 20% of playwrights produced are female. The 20% Theater Company Twin Cities mission aims to produce new and progressive work by female, transgender, and gender-queer theater artists, while also supporting the same gender minorities artistically behind-the-scenes. The 2009 season contained the sell out play "The Naked Eye: Monologues from Beyond the Binary" written by Tobias K Davis. Tobias and Claire co-directed The Naked Eye in 2003 at Smith College. This play is the transgender version of the Vagina Monologues.
