Pillsbury House Theatre

PILLSBURY HOUSE THEATRE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received two grants from the Jerome Foundation. The first, in the amount of $12,000, is dedicated to the development and production of new plays by emerging playwrights. The 2003 mainstage season of Pillsbury House Theatre includes three works by Melissa James Gibson, Stephen Guirgis and Zell Miller, III. In addition, the Theatre will produce its annual reading series titled Three Mondays, showcasing the works of new and emerging playwrights. A second grant commitment of $32,500 was made to the Theatre in support of the continuation of the series Late Nite: Non-English Speaking Spoken Here. Formerly housed at Penumbra Theatre, this series will be re-visioned and piloted by Pillsbury House Theatre. It will feature new commissioned works developed by emerging performance artists. Late Nite represents a transformation of culture where text, music, spoken word, sounds and images weave together a fearless celebration of new artists, new voices and new art. Late Nite artists explore the cross-currents of social change, community and identity. The theme for the 2003 series is Keeping My Bags PackedMoving to New Neighborhoods.
