Inspired by the lives of Sir Douglas Haig and John Singer Sargent, Passchendaele follows a general, a painter, and a Chinese trench digger in World War I. The fates of these men reconstruct our image of war and art in this seminal moment of our history.

Help us enact another seminal moment in our history, and help produce this beautiful, haunting play!

We have already raised half the budget from our wine tasting/auction event, which will cover festival fees, publicity, and some production costs.

While Passchendaele, like all independent theater, is a labor of love, Thesia Arts believes strongly in providing compensation for work. Your can help us pay our cast and crew the fees they deserve.

You can also sponsor props, costumes and set pieces, all of which will add great value to our play!

So please, consider becoming a part of this important production. Art may be its own reward, but we've got some more fun ones for you to choose from!

Sincerely,

Thesia Arts
