Support Jesse Gephart

Last night, Jesse Gephart's apartment building burned down. 

Jesse and his fiance, Eddie, were in Asheville picking out wedding venues, so they had to find out on the news that they had lost everything they owned, including two beloved cats.

No one deserves such a tragedy, but least of all these kind and supportive friends of local theatre who have made us laugh and cry and think for years. 

So if you want to help, here are the ways you can do it.

1.  Donate to this campaign.  All funds raised here will go directly to Jesse as soon as he returns so that he and Eddie can help rebuild their lives with necessities such as furniture, clothing, and the down payment for renting a new place. 

2. Buy a ticket to Jesse's show.  Jesse's company, Mortall Coile  opens Master Harold and the Boys this week. I think it would be a great show of moral support if we ALL showed up.  Here's the link to ticket sales:

3.  Stay tuned to this page. Once Jesse returns, and has a chance to recover somewhat, he might have requests for actual items that we can provide, like a bed or clothes, etc. When we know, we will post it here.
