The Blind Owl is thrilled to be putting on Sarah Kane’s CRAVE as our inaugural production. CRAVE embodies everything The Blind Owl holds to be vital to theatre; truly poetic language, a script that demands an ensemble at all times, and no emotional boundaries in rehearsal or performance. Crave is a play about the unconscious demons we all try to smother. It's about the pain of being human and how connection with another is the only escape. As much as we love rehearsing, our production will not be complete until we share it with an audience. That means YOU. And we need your help to make this happen. Putting on a show is a costly venture that includes the following expenses:
Space - $1800
Script Rights - $600
Actors - $400
Production Team - $800
Costumes/Props/Set - $800
Lights/Sound - $200
Marketing - $400
These costs are the minimal to put on a two week run at a Chicago storefront theatre. We are not asking for any more money than what we need to make this happen. $5000 is a lot to a group of newly graduated theatre artists. Anything you have to give whether it’s $5 or $500, we appreciate it and thank you for helping make our dream a reality.
Thank you for reading and visiting our kick-starter page. Your generous contributions will bring to life a new theatre company in Chicago. One that puts its artists first and tries to be fearless in every step of our process, so please help us bring CRAVE to the stage this August!
The people who are making this all happen include:
Actors: Marielle de Rocca-Serra (M), Gabi Mayorga (C), Jared Lorenzo (B), and Tibor Radvanyi (A)
