Academy award and Pulitzer prize winner John Patrick Shanley has agreed to come on board to help me with an event that’s really close to home for Michelle and me.
Beautiful Gate Orphanage is building a working farm, home, and school for children from six to eighteen who remain unadopted and have fallen through the cracks of the broken Lesotho foster system…to offer these children a chance at a flourishing life.
It’s called the PEKA PROJECT: 33 acres in north west Lesotho (in southern Africa) where children can love, play and learn in a caring and safe environment.
John Patrick Shanley and a stellar cast of ten actors have joined the PEKA PROJECT to create a virtual live fundraiser presentation: actors will perform scenes from the film and theatre work of John Patrick Shanley – spanning his career. After each scene, the audience will have a chance to interact with the writer and cast via a live Q&A session.
Ten actors. Five scenes. The writer. An audience of fans. All virtual. All for the Children of Lesotho. AMAZING!
The event, ‘An Evening of Scenes from Shanley’, is a one-off exclusive VIRTUAL presentation
Zoom on Saturday, February 12th (5pm – 7pm EST | 2pm – 4pm PST).
