The foundation is pleased to announce three new production grants for May 2018:

  • A grant to Enigma Theater Company, Monroe Township, N.J., to assist in the proposed production of The File on J. Edgar Hoover, by Steve Gold, at the Winterfest Festival in Manhattan in 2019. The play is a dark comedy based on the life of Hoover, the longtime FBI director, and his relationship with his associate Clyde Tolson.
  • A grant to (re)discover theatre, Chicago, Ill., to help support the production of its immersive theater piece Les Innocents/The Innocents. Described as an “epic queer romance,” Les Innocents/The Innocents is set in the Paris catacombs in the late nineteenth century. Performances will run from October 10 through November 4, 2018, at the Preston Bradley Center in Chicago. For more about (re)discover theatre, visit the company’s website.
  • A grant to SF Film, San Francisco, Calif., acting as fiscal agent, to help support Frankly Speaking Films’ production of a promotional video for its forthcoming documentary film Ahead of the Curve. The documentary focuses on the career of Franco Stevens, the woman who in 1990 founded the lesbian magazine Deneuve (later Curve).
