Immigration, abortion make appearances at women's playwriting festival 

The cliché that women focus on character and men on narrative, says Manitou Art Theatre artistic director Birgitta DePree, is erroneous. At least in the MAT's Six Women Playwriting Festival, it's the 10-minute-limit for each play that "necessitates a focus on character," because there's no time for plot twists and turns. (Which isn't to say there aren't any surprise endings.)
