The latest effort to combat gender inequality in theater comes courtesy of The Kilroys, a group of LA-based women playwrights and producers founded last year. 

The Kilroys have launched The List, modeled after Hollywood's Black List, that spotlights the 46 best unproduced or only-once-produced works by female playwrights. Over 120 theater professionals were surveyed to compile the list. 

According to a statement, the Kilroys have determined that a play will be eligibile if it is 1) unproduced or have had only a single professional production; 2) by an author who identifies as female; and 3) among the most excellent seen or read by the industry professional within the previous twelve months.

Janine Nabers (picture above) and Jen Silverman both have two plays on The List. Nabers won the Yale Playwriting Prize earlier this year. 

In the 2012-2013 season, only 10.5% of Broadway plays, 21% of DC plays, and 22% of Los Angeles plays were written by women.
