Funding Appeal and an Invitation from Norway to Palindrome Theatre

Palindrome Theatre Austin TXWe are very excited to be moving closer toward All My Sons by Arthur Miller (July 13 - August 4), and while this is our flagship production this year (and so our most expensive), we are honored to have already received financial support from the likes of The City of Austin's Cultural Arts Division- and


A collection of Palindrome supporters have come together to give a challenge grant- they will match dollar for dollar every contribution to Palindrome up to $10,000! Basically, that means they're sponsoring half of the production if we and our patrons can come together to fund the other $10,000!
We know this is not a small price tag, but as I said before, they match dollar for dollar- you give $1, Palindrome gets $2; you give $50, Palindrome gets $100- so please, any amount is foundational in helping us bring this world-class work to our Austin Community! You can donate on our Website,, where you can also reserve tickets for All My Sons!

...speaking of world-class work, Palindrome is also very proud to announce, that after months of consideration, our Artistic Director and resident playwright Nigel O'Hearn as been officially invited by the National Theatre of Norway to be a special guest of the 2012 International Ibsen Festival in Oslo where Palindrome's Hedda Gabler was a finalist for inclusion in the festival!

If you can, please consider helping us produce this work, and if you are moved to, forward this message along to help spread word of the play and the work Palindrome is doing for the Austin community. See you at the Theater,
