Thank you for your on-going support of LTC. When we created LTC in 2009, the theatre community lacked diversity in terms of the new plays being produced and opportunities open to new Black playwrights. Our mission and vision then, as now, has been to address this and I am proud to say our work is bearing fruit.
48Hours in...™ Harlem, the groundbreaking annual short play festival we initiated in 2010, as part of Harlem9, which showcases Black playwrights, directors, actors, and producers, received an award at the 59th Annual Village Voice Obie Awards. In July 2019, in collaboration with Detroit Public Theatre, we will produce our inaugural 48Hours in...™ Detroit; then in North Carolina, 48Hours in...™ Holy Ground, and then 48Hours in...™ Harlem at the National Dance Institute.
The Black Playwrights’ Group, our monthly laboratory for the nurturing of new Black playwrights, is in its ninth year, gathered together perhaps its strongest assemblage of new playwrights since the group’s inception.
The Writing Residency Program, helps more black playwrights become a longstanding voice in American theatre. Four early-career playwrights will receive ten months of resources, workshops and feedback designed to help them reach their professional and artistic goals.
Offer one-on-one dramaturgical services to playwrights further along in their play development and careers.
Publish anthologies of 10-minute plays by Black and Latino playwrights, which will enable their work to be seen by a wider audience.
Collaborate with other arts and community-based organizations in ways that use theatre to stimulate discussion around social issues.
To do all of this requires financial support. We continue to seek and successfully obtain private foundation grants but the assistance we receive from individual donors like you is doubly valuable. We will greatly accept your tax-deductible gift in any amount, however, a $2,500 gift will help us publish that play anthology; $1,500 will sustain the Black Playwrights Group for the year; $500 can cover expenses related to our public readings. But understand that gifts in any amount, from $15, $25, $50 or more, are always deeply appreciated.
