Launching CCTA 2023!
The theme for Climate Change Theatre Action 2023, “All Good Things Must Begin,”
was inspired by the journal entry of American science fiction writer Octavia Butler.
Butler was incredibly prescient, writing about extremism, racial justice, and climate change some 30 years ago.
By setting intentions and visualizing a positive outcome, she defied the odds and became the author of many celebrated novels, winning each of science fiction’s highest honors.
While the worlds of her novels depict the violent challenges of today’s interlocking crises, her protagonists remain devoted to thriving, to achieving survival beyond the destructive and oppressive societies they come from.
The climate crisis demands the same kind of imaginative leap: we will create a just and regenerative world only if we dare to imagine it first, and use that vision to guide us through the difficulties.
For more information, visit our CCTA website.

Woolly Mammoth Theatre
Weissberg Commissioning Program
The Weissberg Foundation has provided a grant to Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company for the creation of the theatre’s first dedicated commissioning program.
Named in honor of the late theatre lover and philanthropist Marvin Weissberg, the commissions will function as a three-year program to support writers, directors, designers, choreographers, or other generative artists, both local and non-local, in the creation of innovative theatrical works with themes of social justice and a connection to the D.C. area.
The program will consist of full commissions, seed commissions, and finishing commissions, ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 per project.
They may fund completely new full-length plays, support workshops of an idea, or give artists the opportunity to finish incomplete works.
The selection of commissioned artists will be curated by new-work director Fernandez and artistic director Maria Manuela Goyanes.
At the conclusion of the three-year cycle, Woolly intends to continue with a commissioning program and develop the commissioning model over the next several years.
