Theater in the Rough is dedicated to offering quality and accessible, affordable theatrical experiences, including summer Shakespeare in Jerusalem.
Our funding comes from theater enthusiasts like you. Thank you!
Since 2010, Theater in the Rough has:
- Presented 30+ performances to more than 6,000 theater-goers of all ages
- Offered more than 20 workshops to performers at all levels of training
- Created a living and working community of artists, performers and theater-lovers
What do we need?
Theater in the Rough’s productions are performed and managed by local artists, primarily volunteering their time.
Your donation will help us continue to present quality, free Shakespeare in Jerusalem and beyond!
Last year, an estimated 2,200 people saw our production of Richard III: in motion. If each of those 2,200 fans gave ₪13, just $4, we’d be done with this campaign today!
What can I do to help?
