The MACHA TEST is a set of criteria we use to determine if a script fulfills our mission to produce Fearless Female Theatre
-Scripts where more than half the characters are female, and/or more than half the lines are spoken by women, and/or female characters are central to the narrative, and/or the script has a female perspective, and/or the story empowers women (and when we say women we mean ALL women: We seek stories that empower and promote women of color, trans women, queer women, and woman of all ages and ability. We are committed to casting all scripts inclusively).
-Scripts without arbitrary violence against women or abuse of women. If the violence or abuse is important to the narrative, it is addressed directly and intentionally in ways that do not perpetuate rape culture.
