In Kind LION Donations






We can accept NON CASH donations for THE LION IN WINTER .


We would submit the information of what was donated to Fractured Atlas , our Fiscal Sponsor.

They would then decide if they accept the item & suggested value , & then issue a receipt to the donor for the item.


This would be very helpful to both.


People might have items that we could use as props for the show .


Or they may have certain building material (wood, nails, braces , rollers ,paint ,etc) to help us

build our sets .


Mind you, this is not a chance to clean out your closet . We need to focus on accepting items that

at present would work in a comedy /drama set in a castle in France in the year 1186 .


Therefore , we would not be able to accept your old Pong Gaming System ,as , much as it would be a funny anachronism , it does not work in a serious drama like THE LION IN WINTER .


Below is a list of items . The cost of Mailing items from other areas of the country may not be considered part of the donation value ,so it is best if you are or can bring to the NYC Midtown area.







(Secure Cash donations can still be done via this link


FEEL FREE TO SHARE & REPOST to see if you know people with these items .



The play is set at Christmas 1183, at a French Castle in Chinon .
