Henry Ong's World Premiere

$4,629 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 70 people in 2 months


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

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!
