Purchase a ticket to this performance and Long Wharf Theatre will donate up to $8.50 per ticket to IRIS – Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, to assist in providing a warm welcome and life-saving assistance to refugees—individuals, over half of whom are children, fleeing persecution in their home countries.
|Tickets: To purchase in person or over the phone, give code IRIS to the box office representative. When purchasing online, select the IRIS DONATION price type (see picture).|
ABOUT COMMUNITY GIVING NIGHTS
Community Giving Night is a simple and automatic way to support outstanding non-profit organizations in the Greater New Haven area while seeing the theatre you love. Just purchase a ticket on one of the designated nights and Long Wharf will donate a percentage of the ticket purchase price to a selected organization, at no cost to you!
For The Chosen Community Giving Night your donation will help IRIS provide a wide array of services to these new Americans including daily English lessons, education and youth programs, access to health care provided by our partner Yale-New Haven Hospital and a thorough multi-day cultural orientation. IRIS also works intensively with each new arrival to begin the important work of finding employment.
LWT is collaborating with IRIS and their clients for the first time this season on the Newcomer Play Project. A group of refugees will see, discuss and create theatre together. Their devised piece will be presented on the Long Wharf stage this Spring.
