Running the Numbers

Latest research on playwrights, slide 16:
Women are more likely than men to write about women.

Female written scripts: Majority female parts 33%.. Majority male parts 67%

Male written scripts: Majority female parts 19%.. Majority male parts 81%
First, I wanted to boast that I was somehow a male with a "majority female parts" script.

Second, "male parts" sounds too much like, you know.

Third... just wait... aren't there any plays with an even number of male and female parts? You know, like "Same Time Next Year"?

Theatrical charts
about male and female parts
should include a batch
of the evenly matched.
