We could not be more grateful to the Jerome Foundation for the very generous grant we just received to produce MARGOT. This grant will help us pay our cast and crew for all of their hard work, which makes up a significant portion of our budget. The Jerome Foundation seeks to foster a dynamic and evolving culture by supporting the creation, development, and production of new works by emerging artists. To have the support of the Jerome Foundation is therefore a great honor, especially since we were one of only five grant recipients chosen from a total of 160 applicants. Knowing how selective the Jerome Foundation is with whom they choose to support emboldens our confidence that MARGOT will be a powerful and successful short.
