Plays From The Front Lines: A Fundraiser For Ukraine
Thursday at 8:00 PM EDT
Theater J and Mosaic Theater, both located in Washington, DC, are collaborating to produce an evening of short Ukrainian plays benefiting Ukrainian charities. The in-person event, consisting of readings of short contemporary plays, will be held on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 8:00 pm at the Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center (1529 16th Street NW, Washington DC). The evening will raise funds for Ukrainian causes and highlight the plight of artists in Ukraine while showcasing the plays. Some of these plays were commissioned, written, and translated just in the last few weeks, and are based on what the playwrights are currently experiencing in their war-torn country.
Plays from the Front Lines: A Fundraiser for Ukraine will consist of play readings directed by Mosaic Theater’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Playwright in Residence Psalmayene 24 and will be followed by a post-show discussion. Admission to the event is pay-what-you-choose, with suggested levels of donation beginning at $50. All of the proceeds will be split between two Ukrainian organizations, Voices of Children, and the Beit Graham Jewish Community Center. Voices of Children provides psychological and psychosocial support to Ukrainian children who are suffering as a result of war operations. Their programs include Art Therapy, Mobile Psychologists, Video Storytelling, and Individual Help. The Beit Graham Jewish Community Center is located in Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine, and money raised from the event will help to provide food, medicine, clothes, and other essential supplies for their members. The play readings will feature local artists, and casting will be announced at a later date. Those who are unable to attend the event in person are still encouraged to make a contribution.
