Dear Friends,

This is a thrilling time for One Year Lease Theater Company.  The OYL ensemble first read pool (no water) in 2008 during our annual residency.  We fell in love with the text and the aesthetic of the writing and have been pursuing the NY rights ever since.

OYL was recently granted the rights for the NY premiere of the piece for a May 2012 production!  We will be performing at 9th Space in NYC from May 9th - 26th. 

We are asking for your support to help us realize a dream that we have had since the OYL ensemble was formed four years ago.  Since then OYL has successfully produced five shows - two of which were New York premieres of work by international playwrights, three of which were commissioned by OYL, and all of which were part of a lengthy process of developing and cultivating a powerful ensemble company. 

We feel that this is the perfect text for this company at this moment in time.  We are asking for your support to help us cross the finish line in raising the funds necessary for this production. 

One Year Lease is a registered 501(c)3 organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Love,
OYL

pool (no water) is what happens when you mix creativity, camaraderie, and art with the kind of envy that rarely sees the light of day.

But seriously, what’s a little jealousy between friends?
