It only seems fitting that, as we round the corner and head into the final stretch of our 30 Days of Gratitude Campaign, we spend a day honoring, celebrating and lifting up ALL the amazing donors who have lifted us up for so long. We very, truly and quite literally, couldn't do with this work without you.
One of the greatest gifts we offer playwrights is the opportunity to focus on their work away from the pressures and expectations of a full production. We do this in many ways, including offering work for free; this allows all of us to focus fully on the playwright's work, without worrying about box office receipts. As Jeni often says to playwrights, "there should be no one in the room who has a larger stake in the work than you do." We are able to keep this promise to playwrights, thanks to so many amazing donors who bit by bit, donation by donation, have provided the funding, resources, talent and material support that has enabled us - together - to send a powerful message to the more than 200 playwrights whose work we've been honored to support and develop over the past twenty years: you, your work, your vision matters.
AND, we see the real world impact of our donors in the lives of plays and playwrights. More than 60% of the full length plays developed at Seven Devils have gone on to full productions around the country and around the world. In fact, whether you meet one of our playwright's work at a small community theater, a large regional house or even on Broadway, you too have been impacted by the collective generosity of our amazing donors.
If you happen to be one of our donors, then I invite you to take a moment (or several!) to really reflect on the impact of your gift and many ways in which the ripples of that gift travel into the world, on to stages out to audiences. It is not hyperbole to say that we couldn't do it without our donors - and that's why we've save this very special spot on our countdown list for AMAZING DONORS!
