Henry Ong's World Premiere
As you can see from the video above the live reading we did was a wonderful success and now we are on a mission. A world premiere of The Blade of Jealousy (adapted from Tirso de Molina's Celosa de Si Misma translated by Harley Erdman) at the Whitefire Theatre is in our future. We need your help! We're taking literature from the 17th century and reintroducing it to this generation because this incredible and funny play shouldn't be left in the past. You can be part of this endeavor by contributing toward our $30,000 goal. Our efforts with your donation will enable us to produce a run in June 2018 where today's audiences can enjoy a little piece of history. A portion of your donation will also go toward Artists Against Oppression. Support live theatre.
Thank you, Henry

Just want to again thank everyone for their kindness. We now have an opening date: Sunday, June 24, 7pm! Stay tuned for more details. Meantime, if you're open to helping us bring this undiscovered gem of a play to the public, we very much appreciate your support. Cheers!
I am continually amazed and grateful for the generosity of friends who support The Blade of Jealousy. I know some of you don't want public acknowledgement but please know that my gratitude is boundless. My heartfelt thanks! I love you! Henry
My deepest gratitude to all who have contributed so far to this campaign. I love all of you. This is a play that is close to my heart: a re-imagining of a classic Spanish play that deserves attention. Thank you to all who have been inspired to donate and those of you who will join us in our mission.
I am so grateful to all who have donated so far to this campaign! Our aim is to shed light on the rich heritage the 17th century Spanish renaissance plays. The Blade of Jealousy is a re-imagined version of Tirso de Molina's undiscovered gem, Jealous of Herself. Please support this world premiere by contributing, regardless of the amount. It opens in June this year. Thanks!
