    It's that time of year again! Our 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!

    If we successfully raise $10,000 by May 31st (we've added another month), 67% of administrative expenses will be covered through July! Click the PayPal link (and please add 50 cents if you can for the fee)

    As of April 21st, we have reached $5500, so we still need 450 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 $5500 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 1966. 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 $4500 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


    • HOPEFULLY, a visit to Bogotá to participate again in the WOMEN ON STAGE FOR PEACE FESTIVAL at the end of August (we have just received our official invitation!)
    • 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)
    • 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!
