grants & fundraising

when, exactly, are we going to see a script?

In other grants/fundraising news, I have been conducting a delicate dance of hypotheticals, helping a client theater company determine whether or not they can apply for a grant which typically wants a full script – with a devised/new piece, where no script will exist for months.

This is one of the fundamental problems of the field. The work is so nebulous until it is made, and the longer you can go on postponing those artistic decisions, the better chance you have of making the right ones. But how can someone fund something they can’t see?

I think we’re going to go for it, but this will be a good challenge for me – trying to make process, in the grant, as tangible as a script.
