YOUR SUPPORT IS VITAL TO COHESION
Cohesion Theatre Company has recently closed, Men on Boats, our last show of Season Three. We are extremely proud of the work we did throughout this season, and we hope you enjoyed being a vital part of all that we accomplished. Cohesion is thrilled and thankful that you support our mission to bring together a multiplicity of voices and perspectives through theatre, and we have deeply appreciated the support you have given in the past. We could not have created the experiences we have without your contributions. Your giving is manifest in every well crafted performance, bold set, and imaginative interpretation our artists have brought to the stage. We truly rely on the generosity of the communities we serve, and the people who share our vision of arts as catalyst for connectivity in order to accomplish challenging, collaborative work that helps to enrich the cultural life of Baltimore.
While we continue to be committed to bringing innovative, immersive, and high quality theatrical experiences to Baltimore’s audiences, this type of work requires a lot of time and a significant outlay of resources. Bringing new audiences to theatre and cultivating an appreciation for less familiar works and voices is a challenge, but one we believe -- and we hope you believe it to -- is central to the continued growth of theatre as an art form with the capacity to create change. This year Cohesion offered three main stage productions: Schoolgirl Figure, Henry V, and Men on Boats. In addition, we mounted the Political Cabaret at Spotlighters Theater in partnership with Baltimore Improv Group, and staged a remount of our original and award winning work The Complete Deaths of William Shakespeare with Baltimore Shakespeare Factory. Through the inaugural year of our Playwright’s Fellowship we developed and staged two funny and thought-provoking new plays for the first time ever, anywhere: Porn: A Love Story, and Here Be Dragons.
As we always have, we count our successes by the artistry and storytelling we achieve, and the audiences that we touch. However, there is a financial reality as well that we must be vigilant about in order to be excellent stewards of the support we’ve received, and producers of the artists that we serve. It is for these reasons that we are asking for your continued and vital sponsorship in order to help us close our budgetary gap for the end of season three, and take us strongly into preparations for season four. To create work that will build our audiences and not compromise our values requires a huge, daunting effort every season. It could not happen without an investment from friends and patrons like you. You have been on this journey with us for some time now, and you know that we will turn your support into new creative vistas that you won’t soon forget. We are hopeful that you will continue your valued support of Cohesion by making a contribution to us today.

If you haven’t already, please have a look at what we’re lining up for Season Four here on our website. There are still a few things yet to be announced, so keep a lookout as we continue to reveal our plans for next season and beyond. We not only hope that you will support Cohesion Theatre Company and the work we do to make Baltimore a more cohesive community, but we also hope we will have a chance to celebrate your generosity with you at all of ours shows next season ready to talk, engage, and build a better future for Baltimore Theatre with us.
