For the last seven years, Gwydion Suilebhan has been collecting data about the demographics of the plays, playwrights, and directors that make up each DC theater season.
The current analysis of the 2018-19 theater season is the result of a collaboration with DC-based theater artist Olivia Haller. The report covers every show opening between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019. Updated numbers are available here.
Previous analyses—of the 2017-18 theater season, the 2016-17 theater season, 2015-16 theater season, 2014-15 theater season, the 2013-14 season, and the 2012-13 season—are also available for reference.
