    Steps To Home

    A Full-Length Play in One Act

     New York, NY, United States
    This is a Fiscally-Sponsored Project

    Fiscally Sponsored by Fractured Atlas

    THE SHOW
    Told in reverse, Steps To Home, is the story of Kelly & Samantha's decades old friendship which endures despite hardships and relationships.  This play illustrates how two vastly different people can come to be essential in each other's lives.
     
    Our story is told by a female playwright, guided by a gal director, produced by two ladies, and let's not forget our all-women cast and crew. It is no coincidence these women came together to tell this socially vital story.

    ANNOUNCING OUR GOAL: $13,000
    We would love to enlist your help in reaching our budget goal of $13,000. Every single dollar will go towards our current expenses (venue, props, supplies, general liability insurance, etc.) and to our future production, as we plan on extending performances. So please keep giving! We appreciate your support! And remember to come see Steps To Home at The Bridge Theatre!

    A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDERS OF THE COMPANY

    Dear All,
     
    Thank you for your interest in our campaign and for your time! It is truly appreciated! We are a new, very small and modest company but we stand behind our mission statement. When we started this project, we entered into a discussion about how acceptable it has become that artists’ work is taken for granted and that it is paid for in “thank you’s” and exposure. We have revisited this subject prior to each of our productions but this time we felt that we must join those who lead by example. We wanted to offer our production team the chance to be properly employed and at least for a short period of time have access to basic necessities such as healthcare and pension AND make a wage, albeit it is an embarrassingly low wage but that is all we can attempt to pull together for now. 

    The costs of starting and running a business and treating artists to the same standard as that of a low income employee in any other industry, threw us toward the $ goal amount listed in this campaign. We know that we can‘t change the arts industry in one day and that raising funds will be an issue for a long time but we are trying. The expression "a starving artist“ must become dated and we want to drive that change. So, we are going out of our small and modest pockets as much as we can and are counting on your help.
     
    Every buck helps. You know that as well as we do.
     
    Thank you very much for your kindess and support! We hope you enjoy the show!!!
     
    Much Love,
    The JWalkers
