Jasmine’s production company LOUD KARMA PRODUCTIONS is hosting this year’s award: The Loud Karma Emerging Female and Nonbinary Playwright Award—2024 for the second year in a row. We are dedicated to producing works of emerging and marginalized artists who find themselves overlooked for reasons that have nothing to do with their talent. Our mission is to support emerging women artists and artists of any gender who are marginalized because of age, disability, gender, or ethnicity. We support the LGBTQ+ community and are an ally business.

For the second year in a row, Loud Karma Productions will seek out the best and most promising emerging female and nonbinary playwrights to award at the festival. This year, our upcoming project—“She Says—the Women’s Voices Project” will seek to expand the opportunities for our winners to showcase their work. Additionally, the Loud Karma Talk About Theatre Podcast will begin this year and offer interviews to talented playwrights to get attention and a spotlight on their work as a writer for the theatre.
