All production costs – often the major stumbling block for new writers – will be covered by co-sponsors of the event. That includes the venue for performances and rehearsals, technical staff, marketing and promotion, props and costuming, stipend for the director, and talent fees for all performers.

The amazing offer is made possible by IndyFringe Indianapolis in collaboration with the newly-formed Africana Repertory Theater of IUPUI (ARTI).”
