GA Gives 2023

No Comments

Giving Tuesday is a worldwide day of giving that takes place each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, a global day of generosity where people and organizations unite to impact their communities. GA Gives is a statewide movement within that, to highlight Georgia-based causes and organizations, and you can see our involvement with that movement here!

Essential Theatre has been supporting Georgia playwrights and presenting new plays to Atlanta audiences since 1999. In fact, we are the longest-running theatre exclusively dedicated to supporting the work of Georgia playwrights. Since the first Essential Play Festival in 1999, we’ve produced or presented 43 new works by 36 different Georgia playwrights, with readings of over 50 more. Our very first Essential Theatre Playwriting Award winner, Lauren Gunderson, has been the most-produced living playwright in America for several years running!

Essential’s dedication to creating opportunities for Georgia’s playwrights is unwavering, and we are committed to providing meaningful opportunities for our audience to connect with them and be a part of their creative process. Please show your support of Essential by contributing to our GA Gives Day campaign. Help us continue to create new opportunities for Georgia’s playwrights. Thank you for giving a gift today!
