    About NPTC

    We are extending the annual Spring donor campaign, seeking 1,000 dedicated friends, colleagues, and theatre enthusiasts to give just $10, and more importantly, to help spread the word and ask your extended network to become supporters of NPTC!

    The old adage "many hands make light work" certainly applies to this initiative!

    We have just been offered a matching gift for the last $4,000 toward our $10K goal! If we receive that amount BY MAY 31, then we will receive AN ADDITIONAL $4,000, making our total $14,000 as we end our fiscal year.

    As of May 8th, we have reached $6125, so we still need 388 people to donate just $10--so ask your friends, form a collective, host a dinner, offer a service--we love finding creative ways to get 10 friends to donate!

    And here is what that first $6125 helped to support:

    • ON HER SHOULDERS programming, with a staged reading of works by African American writer May Miller on March 8th, and a very special event--RADICAL VOICES, THEN AND NOW on April 3rd, both at the New School.
    • The publication of ON HER SHOULDERS essays, introducing 30 plays from 26 female playwrights, covering the years 1668 to 1970. We had a terrific launch party on April 18th!
    • The Women's Work Full-length LAB Mini-Festival of Staged Readings, featuring 2 plays in development a, April 17-20
    • Monthly meetings of the WW Full-length and Short Play LABS, supporting 15 female playwrights, all creating powerful new work!

    The next $3900 will help support:

    • Continued monthly meetings of the Women's Work LABS
    • The final On Her Shoulders event for the season, on June 7th, featuring playwright Djuna Barnes
    • The ongoing work of preparing for the Women's Work Short Play Festival August 7-12

    And the matching gift will pay PEOPLE! The artists and staff members who keep NPTC operating!


    • A return visit to Bogotá to participate again in the WOMEN ON STAGE FOR PEACE FESTIVAL in late August!
    • 2 productions of scripts from the Full-length LAB in fall 2017 and spring 2018
    • Quarterly ON HER SHOULDERS events (Sept., Dec., March, and June) at The New School
    • our continued quest to bring JIHAD, The Play, to Off-Off Broadway!

    Of course, we won't say no if you want to give more than $10. But we really need help in expanding our base of supporters, and would be thrilled if you would gather $10 from others. If 100 people got 10 donations, we'd reach our goal in no time!
