Theater is part of what makes us human: it offers escape, deeper understanding, and inspiration — an intricate, often soul-changing experience. In today's world with its uncertain economic and political landscape, we can look to the theater for a better understanding of ourselves and others. A vibrant, thought-provoking play can influence the way we feel about our lives and encourage us to take a look at our past and our values. Helen Edmundson’s The Clearing is such a play — a searing and politically relevant drama that boldly holds a mirror to our times. Theater 808 is thrilled to be producing this remarkable play at the prestigious 59E59 Theaters this fall. We are not only committed to bringing you this powerful production, but also to giving back to our community and helping create life long theater goers by donating a portion of our proceeds to the Theatre Development Fund Education Program. This program introduces the performing arts to potential audiences in a meaningful way, bringing teachers and schools, individuals and students, communities and organizations to live theatre.

Now, it's your chance to help us to bring the transformative power of theater into the lives and minds of more and more New Yorkers. Please help us continue our mission by supporting our work and this timely and provocative production of The Clearing by making a donation today.
