Would you like a free ticket to this year’s GREENHOUSE Theatre Festival at Z Below?

We are so excited! Our theme is Unearthing Questions for the 21st Century. The dates are April 24 – 28 at Z Below, Z Space’s 80-seat black box theatre in San Francisco. We need your help! This year, we're producing four new works in progress by four SF State playwrights addressing questions about identity, mental health, the façade of corporate caring and the dignity of end of life choices.

What We Have

Characters who will not be erased – six Muslim women who explore the borders of identity and belief, a young woman who knows how depression’s depths know no bounds, an idealistic advertising executive who learns about the so-called social conscience of the corporate world, and a terminally ill man who insists that his death is a right and not a privilege.

What We Need

Some financial help:

$800 ($200 per play) to pay for production costs

$500 to pay for printing scripts for actors, directors, stage managers, posters and theatre programs

$1300.00 total

What You Get

Our everlasting love, gratitude and a free ticket with your donation!
