THE POST OFFICE is the story of Ash, a child suffering from a mysterious illness. Despite being confined at home by the doctor, she remains hopeful, winning over strangers with her positive attitude and ability to imagine a better life for herself.
We are engaging a community of students and professionals to create a piece of theatre as a companion to the United Nations Civil Society Conference.

Designed by Maddy Ashton (set), Cheryl Cluff (sound), Pilar Davis (lighting) Maddiey Howell-Watkins (costumes).

100% of ticket sales benefit Adopt-A-Future, a program of the United Nations Association, providing direct support for refugee education at the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya.
But that’s not all: donations will be also be quadruple-matched!
How you ask?
