support our journey!

In August 2018, we had a seamless and successful run of THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU SO, with the excitement of an extra night being added to our run at the last minute, due to popular demand, and an unexpected opportunity. 

We are overwhelmed by the warm response of all our audiences. Further, we are really moved by the faith placed in us by over 40 individual donors from across the world: Sri Lanka, the US, the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and beyond. Those donations. combined with the ticket revenue of a sell-out 4-night run, meant that we were able to meet our financial targets more than comfortably.

This production was funded almost entirely by individual donations, ranging from Rs 2,500 to Rs 75,000.

Arun Welandawe-Prematilleke was awarded the Gratiaen Prize in Sri Lanka this year, for THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU SO.

And we are ready to bring the show to Colombo once more in January 2020!
You can support the journey.
