Giving@First 2018

Giving@First is a one-night-only festival of short plays that will be created from page to stage within a 24-hour period. Our talented crew of more than 20 writers, directors, and actors will scramble overnight and all day long to create a full festival from scratch! This play-in-a-day event will be a unique experience to see live theatre that is fun, frantic, unforgettable, and for an important cause!

All donations and sales collected at this event were given to the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. Since 1973, BARCC has been working to end sexual violence through healing and social change. Help us to support this incredible organization and the amazing work they are doing in our community.
