About this project

The Milk Can Theatre Company produces new play festivals every year.  We usually limit ourselves to once a year, but in 2012 we decided to do it twice - first with The Snap Shot Plays (seven plays inspired by photographs) and again in the fall with The Austen Plays (new works inspired by Jane Austen).  

We have a lot of great ideas already about what The Austen Plays will look like, but we need your help to make them the best plays that they can be.  If our Kickstarter is successful, we would use that money to go towards producing this festival - renting the rehearsal space and performance venue, paying for designers, creating awesome costumes, crafting new sound for the play, promoting the plays and a whole lot of other things that go into making a new play festival.  It takes a lot of work (and money) to go into a festival like this and we want The Austen Plays to be our best yet.

We've been around for 9 years (and produced 8 play festivals) but we couldn't have made it this far without the generous support of our friends, family and anyone else who likes supporting the development and production of new works for the stage.
