Theatre@First will be donating a percentage of profits from this production to Save the Whales, in Jaie's honor.
"With everything that's going on right now, it seems like caring for ocean mammals should be low priority, but in fact many cherished aspects of our lives rely on the preservation of the precious life contained in our seas. Whales are intelligent, beautiful creatures who have repeatedly shown love and affection for us. The least we can do is look out for them."
If you would like to donate directly to Save the Whales, you can donate here.
Web of Murder will be presented at Unity Somerville, 6 William Street, Somerville.
