Conservative playwrights in a liberal medium spurring the passionate dialogue and real listening that being face to face demands.
My name is Cara Blouin and I want to host a Republican Theater Festival.
I have ten great new plays that give really complex insight into conservative ideas and the lives of people who hold them- but I need help to give them a great showing. Plays and Players theater in Philadelphia has been really generous in including us in their season- but I want to make sure that we have the lights, sets and costumes that will make sure we have the best production possible, and I want to be able to pay the actors, designers, directors, crew and the writers. Please help me get this festival done right!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our festival has been met with a lot of resistance within the theater community- people are offended that we're inviting conservative viewpoints into what is usually a reliably liberal space.
We have the plays, the support of the theater, and a small, dedicated group of people who are committed to our goals of getting them produced, but not having the complete support of the community means it's a little harder for us to call in favors and ask for volunteers- that means more work for the participants, and I don't want to take advantage of their generosity or cause burnout!
