A 12-hour online marathon of Readings and Conversations with 24 New York Theatre Institutions


Saturday April 16th, 10:00 am – 10:00 pm EDT
The New York Theatre Community will come together for 12 hours on Saturday April 16th, from 10:00 am – 10:00 pm for 24 online readings and conversations on www.HowlRound.com. We will share our outrage at the bombing of the Donetsk Drama Theater in Mariupol in Ukraine where 300 people died while seeking shelter in space that is sacred to all of us.
Using the words of playwrights, poets and novelists we will express and share our deep sorrow in response to this shocking and devastating tragedy of our time. By showing our empathy and compassion we will let the world know that the New York Theatre Community cares deeply about the victims, survivors and families of the Mariupol catastrophe and that Ukraine is on our minds. This is not a fundraiser. We anticipate that listeners from over 20 countries will be tuning in. ​The National Public Broadcasting Station of Ukraine will live-streaming the gathering for all Ukrainians.​
