Wednesday, Nov 29, 2023, at 12:00 noon Pacific time (online only) - via Zoom
Golden Thread Productions and Aviva Arts are collaborating in their response to the urgent call put out by ASHTAR Theatre to theater makers around the world to publicly read or perform The Gaza Monologues on November 29th, 2023, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People - a significant day for those who value justice, equality, and freedom for the Palestinian people.
The Gaza Monologues are testimonies written by ASHTAR youth in 2010, after the first war on the Gaza Strip. Tragically, these monologues are still accurate today. They are highlighting the horrors, hopes, and resilience of the courageous Gazans to a wider audience, bringing out the voices of children and people in Gaza.
Golden Thread and Aviva Arts' reading of The Gaza Monologues will be presented in multiple languages.
Online registration is FREE
Once your registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation email with a link for your viewing.
GOLDEN THREAD TICKETING POLICIES In our continuing efforts to provide an equitable and accessible theatre experience for all, we recently revised our ticketing policies and pricing structure to better reflect three fundamental values we hold that we believe foster a just, inclusive and community-driven space.
We have eliminated gatekeeping practices such as exclusive access to prices via discount codes, student/senior status, or group sales and are instead offering a broader range of ticket prices designed to achieve fair wages for our artists while maintaining financial flexibility for our audiences. These include the following ticket categories:
NAME YOUR PRICE Ranging from $20 to $40, Name Your Price tickets offer a range of options, reflecting our more traditional prices. If you previously purchased $20 Thursday tickets, Student/Senior tickets, or General Admission tickets, these are for you!
PAY IT FORWARD Ranging from $50 to $100, Pay It Forward tickets are intentionally priced to support our goal of increasing access to low and no cost tickets, like our Community Walk-ins, each night, for every show. When you purchase one of these tickets, you’re contributing to greater access for all!
PAY WHAT YOU WANT PREVIEWS A self-determined sliding scale, Pay What You Want tickets are available for any preview performance when you pay at the door. (Unfortunately, our box office software can’t do it in advance.) You can also purchase in advance online for only $15.
COMMUNITY WALK-INS A consistent low or no cost option, Community Walk-ins are intended to ensure no one is turned away for lack of funds. 5% of all our seats are set aside each night and can be requested in advance by emailing us at email@example.com under the subject line ‘Community Walk-in’ or at the door subject to availability.
GENERAL BOX OFFICE INFORMATION For assistance with any box office related issue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have registered for a virtual event the link to access your virtual program can be found in the confirmation email for your ticket purchase. For troubleshooting tips for viewing, visit https://goldenthread.org/posts/your-guide-to-the-patron-manager-video-on-demand-platform/.
If you have registered for a free event but can no longer attend, please notify the box office so we can accommodate someone else.
Accessibility for hearing, sight, or mobility can be addressed via email (email@example.com), phone (415-626-4061) or by putting a note in your ticket order. A request in advance of purchase or attendance will assist us in accommodating your party. Unfortunately, our venue cannot offer listening devices.
While we are unable to provide gender neutral restrooms in the venues we rent at this time, we embrace gender diversity and maintain an inclusive space where individual identities are respected. All are welcome to use the restroom that is most comfortable for them, including a private single-stall restroom available in our adjacent office, accessible via a staff member.
COVID-19 SAFETY & PROTOCOLS
Golden Thread is a fully vaccinated company. Our health and safety protocols comply with current health and safety guidelines provided by the State of California and City of San Francisco. These policies will be updated if city guidelines change.
For the safety of our artists and fellow audience members, we strongly recommend all guests to wear well-fitted masks while inside the theater. Per CDC guidance, we encourage the use of procedural masks (either alone or with a cloth mask on top) or a higher grade N95 or KN95 mask instead of cloth masks alone.
At performances where concessions are served, we strongly recommend guests resume masking when not actively eating or drinking. The ability to take concessions into the theater will vary depending on the venue.
By registering for an in-person event, you agree to adhere to our COVID-19 health and safety protocols. For more health and safety information, click here.
