In Partnership with the Embassy of the Czech Republic

In this project, Alliance for New Music-Theatre joins in solidarity with the Center for International Theatre Development (CITD), which commissioned over several dozen plays since Putin’s army invaded Ukraine, calling their endeavor the Ukrainian Hope Initiative, and with John Freedman, translator and friend of so many of the country’s leading theatre artists. We applaud their efforts to support playwrights in war-torn Ukraine.


Donations are encouraged, and all proceeds will go through CITD to support Ukrainian theatre artists directly.

To learn more about the project, including how you can support Ukrainian artists and to host an additional Ukrainian Play Readings event, go to Ukrainian Plays Reading Project (
