     Project Development
 A Play is Born!
In 2016 Unto This House was presented as a 30 minute presentation of New Hope Baptist Church.  Over the past two years the project has grown exponentially and taken on many partners to spearhead the project and watch it grow. 
 
The Witherspoon Institute and Hibernian Hall have taken the lead to develop the project with the support of New Hope Baptist Church as a community outreach partner.
 
Since 2017 we have been putting an incredable team together.  Our project was met with much heatfelt support.  Community partners have been tremendous!  They include Berklee College of Music from our friend Curtis Warner (VP of Community and Goverment Affairs), Boston Conservatory at Berklee (Dance community), Hibernian Hall, and Boston Neighborhood Network News (BNN) with the steady guidance of Steve Marx who is helping develop the play for video production - meaning it's being filmed this season and will be available on DVD.

Our team has a great wealth of experience and know that, despite the complexity of the project with poets, puppets, singers, dancers, mime, costume designers , lighing designers and more we know that our team will pull it all together to present an awesome showcase to be e
njoyed for many years to come.
