Join us in amplifying the new work of Ukrainian playwrights and raising money for the people of Ukraine.
Arts organizations across the Twin Cities – the Jungle Theater, Playwrights’ Center, The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA), and Theatre Novi Most, join The Worldwide Readings Project to share new works by Ukrainian playwrights and raise money for Ukrainian war relief.
The Jungle Theater will host the first event on April 25 at 7:30 pm. (Register HERE), and The Museum of Russian Art will host the second on April 30 at 7:30 pm in the Main Gallery of the Museum (Register HERE). (Doors open at 6:30 PM.)
Directed by Lisa Channer and Vladimir Rovinsky, these performances will feature excerpts of up to eight new works written since the Russian invasion began, through a commission from the Trust for Mutual Understanding. Both evenings will also include live music performed by Lev & Olga Frayman. The talented cast performing these staged readings includes Paul de Cordova, Sun Mee Chomet, Adelin Phelps, and Barbra Berlovitz.
Limited seats are available for these in-person community events, which will also be streamed live on the event’s Facebook page. Admission for both the in-person readings and the YouTube live stream is free, but donations to support Ukrainian efforts are encouraged.
