Over the last few weeks, we’ve continued to develop THE NOBODIES WHO WERE EVERYBODY (Working Title), our upcoming original play about the legacy of the Federal Theatre Project. We’ve held several readings, met with collaborators, and revised the script to get it ready for our full production this summer. We’re really enjoying this process and can’t wait to share this story with you. Watch this space for more updates!
Much like the squirrels and groundhogs in Prospect Park, we’re emerging from hibernation and ready for spring. And of course, we want to see all your lovely faces! Celebrate the new season with us at our Spring Happy Hour at 6pm on Thursday, March 16th at Tile Bar in the East Village. Enjoy a cocktail or two and talk theater (or whatever’s on your mind!) with the TIA Community at our favorite quarterly gathering. Can’t wait to see you all there!
Our friends at Step1 Theatre Project are raising funds for their upcoming 8th season! Co-Founding Artistic Directors Jazmyn & Janelle started Step1 Theatre Project in 2016 with the goal of feeling free to create whatever theatre was in our hearts. Since then, their team has grown, their vision has gotten clearer, and their goals are more specific. Today, Step1's mission is to help local playwrights from communities experiencing marginalization through readings and workshop productions. They aspire to give folks a casual and joyful space to develop their work.
In 2023, they have already co-hosted another free Co-working & Networking session, they're planning to host 4 more R&D cold reading sessions, produce our 2023 staged reading and (...the big one...) co-produce our first Workshop Production since 2020! ... All of this on top of their goal of transitioning from a fiscally sponsored organization to 501(c)(3) non-profit!
They hope you will consider becoming a supporter of their 2023 season—check out their website step1theatre.org to learn more about what they believe in, why they do what they do, and their past events/productions.
