Play Performance and Post-show Panel Discussion 

What’s the event about?

A Small Fire, a play staring Bebe Neuwirth, “follows Emily Bridges, a woman used to running all the things – from her construction business to her family – until she suddenly and mysteriously starts losing her physical senses. As her world changes, her relationships shift in poignant and revelatory ways.” – PTC.

Immediately after the play ends, there will be a brief panel discussion led by NAWBO member Mylena Sutton with three women entrepreneurs in Philadelphia, including NAWBO member Kristen Smith, who will be sharing how gender impacts entrepreneurships and how women maintain their sense of self and identity in male-dominated industries.

Who will this event benefit?

NAWBO members and women business owners will especially appreciate the play’s story and discussion about the female entrepreneur’s experience.
