Plays from the Front Lines: A Fundraiser for Ukraine
Hosted by Theater J and Mosaic Theater Company
Directed by Mosaic Theater’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Playwright in Residence, Psalmayene 24
In-Person Reading on Thursday, April 28 at 8:00pm | Theater J’s Goldman Theater
The evening will consist of readings of short, contemporary Ukrainian plays. Some of the plays were commissioned, written, and translated just in the last few weeks, and are based on what the playwrights are currently experiencing in their war-torn country. The evening will raise funds for Ukrainian causes and highlight the plight of artists in Ukraine while showcasing the plays. The play readings will feature local artists, and casting will be announced at a later date.
Admission to this event is Pay-What-You-Choose, with suggested levels of donation beginning at $50. All of the proceeds will be split between two Ukrainian organizations: Voices of Children, and the Beit Graham Jewish Community Center, located in Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine. Voices of Children provides psychological and psychosocial support to Ukrainian children who are suffering as a result of war operations. Their programs include Art Therapy, Mobile Psychologists, Video Storytelling, and Individual Help. The Beit Graham Jewish Community Center is located in Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine, and money raised from the event will help to provide food, medicine, clothes, and other essential supplies for their members.
