MacDeth! Raises Money for Pulse Victims with Friday Performance

Ryan J-W Smith - MacDeth

Award-winning British poet and playwright, Ryan J-W Smith, artistic director of Rogue Shakespeare®, has announced that 100% of the box office of this Friday’s performance of his new verse comedy, MacDeth!, will be donated to the GoFundMe campaign Support Victims of Pulse Shooting.

“Every available ticket has been made ‘Pay What You Can’ – with a suggested donation of $100,” says Smith. “I do not want to politicize what we are doing – we just want to do something to help the victims of this horrific attack. Let’s sell-out Friday night, please give what you can to support those in need, and hopefully this will encourage other shows to do the same. We all live in luxury here, we can all afford to donate a little cash – and at least one night’s work.”

MacDeth! is currently playing at the Ruby Theatre on Hollywood. Friday’s performance starts at 10pm. For tickets and more information, visit http://hff16.org/3680.
