Toronto is a fabulous city for theatre. I have fairly eclectic taste, and I find Nightwood’s selections are varied, and not easy to predict, which I like. I’m supportive of Nightwood’s focus on women’s achievements in every theatrical capacity - writer, director, producer, actor, staging - and their emphasis on education and mentorship. It increases the opportunities for talented women to work in the field, and I think that’s valuable.

-Valerie Hussey

As a monthly donor, I am automatically part of the Nightwood community without worrying about setting money aside for an annual donation, or remembering to make a payment each month. Giving to Nightwood ensures I will always be able to see great theatre made by talented women for less than what I spend on coffee monthly.

-Eleanor O’Connor

Please consider joining the Artistic Director’s Social Circle for donors of $1,000 and up!
