About this project

$960

Nephrectomy is an original play by Elizabeth Hagerty, starring 20-something egocentrics and an incident with a kidney. Each character has a dream but no follow-through, until friendships take a turn for the worse and their ambition gets out of hand.

Theatre is a world of rejection. But, just like in the play, you can't sit around and accomplish your goals. This new work was written because the best way to be involved in theatre is to create your own projects.

Nephrectomy was accepted to The Capital Fringe Festival (in Washington, DC each July) which is a huge honor. We need your help to afford the fees for the venue, management, etc. Performing this play would mean so much - proof that you can, and should, make your own opportunities.

Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

As with any theatre performance, a number of last minute problems can occur... a cast member is sick or injured, the performance space has technical issues, etc. However, we are given a performance space through the festival, and have very minor technical requirements... five minutes to get in the space, five minutes to get out. And with only three characters, the cast members will be closely accounted for. This will be a group who have worked on many previous productions and are able to work through problems. After all, the show must go on.
