Help Fund Jacob Monroe Hates Clowns!

Bringing Jacob Monroe Hates Clowns to a New York City stage has been my biggest dream since I was 18. What began in a playwriting class as a lighthearted romance "” "a lovelorn fool must attend clown college to chase after his childhood crush" "” deepened over time into something much greater and much more urgent.

Now a hysterical and heartbreaking metanarrative about what it means to dream, need and move on "” and reinventing the archetypes of Greek and Shakespearian tragedy alongside the quick-tongued fools of Commedia dell'Arte "” Jacob Monroe Hates Clowns is only $5000 away from a week-long run on a New York City professional stage, just blocks from Times Square.

I have the script. The contract is saved to my computer. All I need now is you. Help me produce the play that gave me the strength to overcome my fear of failure "” and ask yourself if you've ever had a dream you'd stop at nothing to make real.

Dreams are possible. I look forward to seeing you at the show.

Wishing you all the best,
