OUR $10 DONOR CAMPAIGN IS BACK!

WE HAVE REACHED $5500! Help us get to $10K by May 31st!For the last few years, we have worked to get 1,000 people to donate just $10--our own crowd-funded project without paying fees. That's less than 1% of all New Yorkers, and the $10,000 raised covers 70% of our costs through the end of the fiscal year! We are very frugal at NPTC, and supported by many volunteers and in-kind donations. Yet we do a LOT with very little. Click the link above to find out what we have accomplished in the last two months!


LAUNCHING OUR FIRST-EVER BOOK!

Join us on Tuesday, April 18th at 3:00pm for the launch of our first publication, ON HER SHOULDERS: Collected Essays on Women Playwrights from the Past. The book includes biographies and dramaturgical analyses of 30 plays from 26 writers, spanning the years 1668 to 1966. Special Guest Mari Lyn Henry will introduce us to Martha Morton, whose playwrights association would become the Dramatists Guild. Books will be available for purchase.


STAGE STRUCK! PERFORMS MAY 19-22

NPTC is pleased to partner with the Society for the Preservation of Theatrical History to co-produce a new version of STAGE STRUCK!: Reclaiming the History of Women in Theatre. Join us for an intimate soiree with five fascinating actresses whose careers spanned the years 1860 to 2010! With Cynthia Bastidas, Paula Ewin, Ginger Grace, Mari Lyn Henry, Judy Rosenblatt, and Sandhi Santini.


NEXT ON HER SHOULDERS EVENT: JUNE 7!

Save the Date! Our next OHS presentation will be on June 7th at the New School. Directed by Melissa Attebery, the featured playwright will be Djuna Barnes (1892-1982). Intrepid journalist, visual artist, novelist, poet and playwright, Barnes broke all the rules and was the last of the original English-language modernists when she died in 1982 at the age of 90.


PEOLA'S PASSING AVAILABLE FOR BOOKING

Cynthia Robinson's provocative play PEOLA'S PASSING, created in the Women's Work Short Play LAB back in 2011, remains distressingly relevant six years later. Set in 1964, it was one of two plays that we took to the Festival Alternativo in Bogotá last year, and recently performed at Westchester Community College. The production is easily transportable, and now available for college bookings in the Tri-State area.
