Summerworks Bailout

It is our great pleasure to announce that we are donating profits from our July 22 performance of SPENT at the Young Centre towards helping Summerworks make up their budget shortfall.

Summerworks is one of the most important, vibrant festivals in the country nurturing new, independent work and acting as a launching pad for fledgling productions.

This summer they lost a large portion of their federal  funding and they have asked the community to help them ensure that they can continue to flourish and function effectively within the Canadian theatre ecology.

The Canadian theatre community is up in arms and the story has been all over the news for the past while.
For more information check out the Globe and Mail coverage  here, or here

Or read a great article about it from Praxis Theatre’s Michael Wheeler here

Summerworks is also in the midst of a grassroots fundraising campaign that you can help support here
