It’s been 20 electric years of telling engrossing and responsive stories, 20 years of training the young artists and educators of tomorrow, and 20 years of incorporating community organizing principles into our best practices. With so much more to give, we are grateful to have come so far.

During this end of year giving season, we’ll be revisiting and sharing the rich history of the communities, partnerships, and productions that have come to define Waterwell. We hope you will join us on this journey as we begin to look forward to the next 20 years.

Waterwell cannot do this electric work without supporters like you. Alongside our community of creators and partners, you power what we do!

Living in a Convent with nuns, fork thieves, and long-time resident who has it out for you may sound like a nightmare, but in New York we just call that Tuesday. Inspired by A GOOD DAY TO ME NOT TO YOU, we asked our Opening Night guests what their most memorable roommate experiences were.

See before December 16. Sliding Scale tickets begin at $15: https://www.waterwell.org/a-good-day-to-me-not-to-you-show-page

On Monday, November 27 - come see the show and stay afterwards to hear these three incredible leaders in Maternal Health + Childbirth —

- founded and leads a national birth justice organization, Ancient Song
- filmmaker who made the groundbreaking documentary
- a co-founder of Carriage House Birth

They will make connections between Lameece’s beautiful show and what is going on in New York State related to these issues — what an HONOR to have them at the show and hear their perspective.

Tickets start at $15 - hope to see you there

Lameece Issaq’s “A Good Day to Me Not to You” strives for intimacy, but that is not necessarily the aim of works by Alexandra Tatarsky, Milo Cramer and Ikechukwu Ufomadu.

St. Agnes watches over the residents of an Upper West Side boarding house in A GOOD DAY TO ME NOT TO YOU, so we took to the Opening Night Red Carpet to find out what our guests would be the Patron Saint of.
