We are The White Squirrel Players: a group of college students from Nazareth College in Rochester, NY.
Two years ago, one of them wrote a play and decided to get her friends together and perform it. After performing it for a second time, they were accepted into the International Youth Arts Festival in Kingston Upon Thames, London, England. The Goodbye Song would be performed three times along with hundreds of other shows and workshops involved in this three week long festival. This is an extraordinary opportunity for all of the students involved.
The Goodbye Song follows a family through past and present as they seek to understand the suicide of the father. But this play is a lot more than a play about suicide. It is a play about a family trying to stay together despite their grief, anger, and confusion.
This play has been the baby of these students for well over a year now, and we truly believe it is a play that everyone should see. Please help us get it to London. Any donation will help. Our minimum goal is $2,000, but we would ideally like to make $5,000. Thank you for your help.
