William Inge Festival Foundation Giving

Dear Friends:

We want to share successes of the William Inge Center—in which our donors play the leading role.

  • Thanks to generous donors, the exterior of the Inge House is authentically restored and looking beautiful! We proudly opened the house to the community as part of the 2019 annual Christmas Home Tours, and the response and attendance was wonderful.

  • Costs for the exterior renovations was partly matched by Kansas Historic Tax Credits—yet-another advantage of our listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • We welcomed three more Inge House Playwrights-in-Residence in 2019. Each residency culminated with a play development workshop featuring guest artists who shared their expertise with the community.

  • Our Playwrights-in-the-Schools program traveled to high schools in Independence and Coffeyville--exposing dozens of budding writers with outstanding instruction in dramatic writing.

  • The Inge Festival’s 2021 Honoree is none other than Lynn Nottage, the only woman to twice win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  

Thanks to your support, dreams and ideas spring to life on the stage, in classrooms, and in new stories that impact the American theater in Kansas and beyond.

Lea Shepard, President, and Hannah Joyce, Producing Artistic Director
