The Comfort Team, Deborah’s new play about military wives, receives grant from Harpo Foundation

Harpo Foundation is pleased to announce 11 new grants that will support the production of new work by under recognized artists in the United States and internationally.  This latest distribution of funds concludes a two-year thematic focus that has sought to explore the relationship between art and site in a dematerializing world.

Harpo Foundation received hundreds of proposals in response to this thematic focus and it has been a privilege to be a part of this evolving and expanding conversation. We would like to thank all of the artists and organizations that responded to our call and Leonardo Drew and Alma Ruiz, and Max Goldfarb and Christiane Paul, who advised our grant making decisions in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

The Comfort Team by Deborah Brevoort is the first-ever grant given to a theatre artist by the Foundation.
