The Suzzanne Douglas Memorial Commissioning Fund

As an actor, activist, educator and advisor, Suzzanne Douglas’ voice and vision helped to shape Luna Stage.

The Suzzanne Douglas Memorial Commissioning Fund reflects and sustains Suzzanne’s commitment to creating powerful theatrical experiences that reflect the experience of communities of color while nurturing the next generation of BIPOC artists.​ Each year for the next 10 years, Luna will commission a new play by an emerging BIPOC playwright that actively engages themes of social justice. Each playwright will be awarded $10,000. Luna will commit to the nurturance and development of these pieces, and their subsequent public performance.

We invite you to join us in honoring Suzzanne’s legacy by supporting these bold new commissioned projects.


#RIFT: A Play In Three Parts

By Gabriel Jason Dean 
Directed by Ari Laura Kreith

Two real-life brothers — one a convicted murderer, the other a playwright; a member of the alt-right versus an A.O.C.-type progressive. Who are we and who do we want to be? How do we take responsibility for our American history? 

PART 1 - Starts 1/25

PART 2 - Fall 2022
