We are so delighted about this collaboration between dana_prather and rosemary.m7 🌸

They’re working with other super rad artists on Good Grief! as part of Downstage's #StageIt program. Find out more about their #PodPlay on our website (link in bio). Dana and Rosemary began with Downstage as Student Ambassadors in 2019! Now, they’re with us as they create this "personal exploration of what it means to grieve", which will be available online in June. Stay tuned for details about accessing this new work.

"Dana and Rosemary put the fun in funeral!"
