The Story

Tricia was passionate about many things, including nutrition, herbalism, gardening, yoga, and theatre.  She harnessed that passion and became a consummate professional in all these areas. What’s more, she was always a teacher and mentor to others, encouraging them to pursue their passions no matter what the obstacle.  A running concern for her was that, being self-employed, she was often without health insurance.  When she qualified for health insurance under the actors' union, Actors Equity Association, it was a huge relief to her. Unfortunately, that’s an option for only a few theatre professionals, so there’s a great need for a wider safety net.  We want to help other people who are working in DC theatre get this essential protection so that they can create theatre throughout their lifetime, no matter what their circumstances. We also want to continue the work she did to build a vibrant and lasting theatre community in Washington, DC. The ultimate intent is to create a fund in perpetuity that can help as many as possible.
