Broken Nose Theatre ( BNT ) has announced the full line-up for Bechdel Fest 7: Momentum—the company's annual festival of new short plays featuring an ensemble of female-identifying and non-binary actors.

Presented as part of Steppenwolf's LookOut Series, Bechdel Fest will play four performances only on Aug. 25-28 at Steppenwolf's 1700 Theatre, 1700 N. Halsted St.

All the works in BNT's perennial feminist festival are inspired by the famous Bechdel-Wallace Test. Created by cartoonist Alison Bechdel, the test asks if a work of entertainment features at least two women in conversation about something other than a man.

Some of the productions in the line-up include Rehearsal ( by Dolores Diaz, and directed by Ben Locke ), The Great Whirlpool of the Niagara ( by Robert Koon, and directed by Jen Poulin ), harderfasterharderfaster ( by Grace McLeod, and directed by Madisen Dempsey ) and Planned Sisterhood ( by Michael Allen Harris, and directed by Brittney Brown ).

The suggested price is $25; visit Steppenwolf.org or by call 312-335-1650.
