Say Gay Plays

Coming in 2024…

n 2024, Voyage Theater Company will celebrate its 10th year as a not-for-profit organization! Through our steady artistic output of 12 mainstage productions and 31 staged readings, we have supported the work of more than 400 artists, nurtured partnerships with other nonprofit organizations, and grown our audience to over 2,000 subscribers.

As we enter our 10th anniversary season, we need your support now more than ever. We are teaming up with Tectonic Theater Company, Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival, Provincetown Theater, Merryall Center, and more to launch an exciting multiyear project:

SAY GAY PLAYS: A Festival of Short Plays for LGBTQ+ Equality

 

The goal is to offer a positive counternarrative to the discriminatory legislation sweeping the nation since the passage of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act, commonly known as the “Don’t Say Gay” law. We will commission 10 LGBTQ+ playwrights to address the current moment through stories of valor, pride, and joy.

SAY GAY PLAYS will premiere in New York as an LGBTQ+ benefit performance. The plays will then be made available to theaters and schools across the country for fundraising events in their own communities. SAY GAY PLAYS will raise awareness of and deliver essential funds to LGBTQ+ organizations in the most vulnerable locations across the U.S.

As SAY GAY PLAYS unfolds, we will provide details about the 2024 launch, announcements about the playwrights and partners, and other updates about the project.

Your tax-deductible donation will provide critical support to help launch SAY GAY PLAYS in 2024, uniting theater artists and communities in support of LGBTQ+ equality.

Thank you for your support as we step boldly into our second decade.
