BACKGROUND:
This 6 month Performance Residency is underwritten by an anonymous benefactor in attendance for the November 2016 premiere performances.  After speaking with the playwright and director, the donor insisted that, “…THIS WORK MUST CONTINUE!” — resulting in 1 Saturday performance each month, January – June, 2017.  Please come out and be a part of this experience as it takes root and grows —share this with your colleagues and friends.
