The Launch, The Future...

On Sunday night, we launched Then This Theatre. Prizes were won! Food and drink was joyfully consumed! Dozens of our friends, collaborators, and co-conspirators honoured Then This by taking over the Grafton Lounge. And we got to talk about why we’re doing this.

Maeve and I founded Then This Theatre Company because of the spark we’ve found as we’ve worked together. We felt that same spark when we encountered Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s Gothic novella “The Yellow Wallpaper.” We knew immediately this had to be our first production.

The Yellow Wallpaper, and this company, are much more than the two of us. We were delighted to celebrate, last Sunday night, not only the birth of this company, but the people who have made all of this possible. It is only through the solidarity and support of our friends and colleagues that this work happens at all.

With this in mind, we’ve launched our own online fundraising campaign. By visiting www.thenthis.weebly.com, you can read more about the Then This Theatre and The Yellow Wallpaper – and make a donation to support our work. Any level of support is greatly appreciated.

Check back here for new blog posts soon--we’ll be posting entries from different members of our creative team over the next few days and weeks.

Til soon,
