Iron Skirt Productions is a female owned production company, formed in the summer of 2022 by Sasha Hawkes and Amy Marcs. Their first production, Iron Skirt Stories, had a three month, sold out run at Moving Arts Theatre in Los Angeles. They are currently producing Amy Marcs' critically acclaimed play, "Nice T!ts" in Taipei, Taiwan. As women who have survived cancer, Sasha and Amy firmly believe in the transformative power of sharing personal stories. Hawkes, an experienced Marriage and Family Therapist, has recently expanded into writing and producing. Marcs (www.amymarcs.com) is a New York City based actress and writer, who is currently working in Los Angeles and Taipei, Taiwan.
Iron Skirt Stories is a production series that focuses on a rotating cast of women performing true and personal tales. Again, if you split apart the words, Iron and Skirt, you will see the juxtaposition of the hard and the soft, the masculine and feminine, the steel and the fabric. It symbolizes so much of what women embody: our ability to whirl, like the skirt, through so many moments of each day, often unnoticed, while continuing to remain solid and fortified. This is an Iron Skirt.
