In July, Sikivu was named a finalist in Advance Gender Equity in the Arts Legacy Playwrights’ grant award program. “The ALP Grant to continue the AGE legacy of investing in artists who have been underrepresented and underserved. Plays produced and directed by women on Broadway and national theatre companies are rare, and this lack of representation negatively impacts BIPOC women and nonbinary artists even more. American Theatre has to do better. Our solution? Invest in those telling the stories.
AGE seeks to change the equity landscape of the American Theatre canon by increasing the representation of women and nonbinary BIPOC playwrights 40+ years of age.”
