Support what's next in American theatre!

Thank you for playing an integral role in the success of EST's 2016/2017 season. Between readings, workshops, and full productions the season featured stories as varied as the effects of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill (Leigh Fondakowski’s SPILL), the tragic life of an adult film actor (Paul Cameron Hardy’s Mope), and a young Chinese-American actress who invents a story of political disposition to gain a part in a play (Zhu Yi’s A Deal) among others.

As friends, audiences, and supporters you made possible:

  • over 250 performances of readings, workshops, and critically-acclaimed mainstage productions
  • the engagement of over 370 artists, including Member Artist playwrights, directors, and actors, as well as designers, technicians, and crew members
  • over 60 writers under commission
  • the continued development of 29 EST/Youngblood playwrights

This impact is impossible without your support. Gifts to EST's Annual Fund are unrestricted, allowing us to use your contribution where it's needed most, be it paint for a set piece or hand towels for the bathroom.

Your gift in any amount helps EST thrive!
