2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

Nimisha has been invited to perform her one-woman show, Uninvited Girl: An Immigrant Story, during the Women in Theater Festival in New York City this June. The play's content is part of a larger cultural shift to diversify the kinds of stories that are represented on the stage, and to bring new live audiences into formal theater spaces. With the grant, Nimisha will be able to travel to NYC with enough time to prepare for the show with her collaborators, meet her childcare needs, and connect with other cultural change agents and artists attending the festival. Uninvited Girl tells the story of a South Asian woman's journey to adjust to the ways of her new country.
