HELP US REACH OUR 27th BIRTHDAY!

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Fans! As we begin our 26th Season (yes, 26 years!) we are hoping to expand our donor base as well as secure REGULAR monthly donations to help sustain our work. Although we deeply appreciate the gifts we receive each spring in our $10 campaign, that covers only about 25% of basic operating costs. Special events and a few government grants help to make up the difference, but we never reach a comfortable level without a constant scramble. If you believe in the work that NPTC does and want make sure we have a little breathing space at crucial points during the year, please become a SUSTAINING DONOR for as little as $10/month! 


ON HER SHOULDERS ASKS A QUESTION

Welcome to THE CAMP, by Griselda Gambaro, an Argentinean playwright whose work in a "theatre of the absurd" style challenged the repressive regimes in her country and eventually led to her exile. Written in 1967, The Camp, with a commandant named Franco, seems to be set in Fascist Spain. But Gambaro is taking aim at the activities of her own government which would lead to the "Dirty War" and a decade of upheaval and The Disappeared.

OUR FIRST-EVER BOOK RECEIVES PRAISE!

The book includes biographies and dramaturgical analyses of 30 plays from 26 writers, spanning the years 1668 to 1970.
