For more than a decade, MTC’s recipe for collaboration has been to create compelling, emotionally powerful, challenging and uplifting works that reflect narratives of many diverse people and cultures. This collaboration includes giving a home to Playwright in Residence Lauren Gunderson and fostering her craft while developing some of MTC's most popular plays, including Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley and the upcoming companion play The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley.

However our recipe for collaboration doesn't work without one key ingredient… YOU! Did you know that ticket sales only account for 40% of our overall expenses? We simply cannot continue doing what we do best without your support. Thanks to contributions from foundations, corporations and donors like you we are able to keep ticket prices accessible for our 30,000 patrons, provide education programs for nearly 4,500 students annually and offer diverse American playwrights a place to create, develop and produce their work.  

This year, a very generous anonymous donor has issued the following challenge to support MTC and new American plays: if you increase your last gift, the increase will be matched; if you double your last gift, the entire contribution will be matched; and all new donations will be matched in full up to $250,000 now through Dec. 31, 2018!

We are asking you to include MTC in your year-end giving plans by making a fully tax deductible gift today!
