Iinitial development of GHOST LIGHT funded by a $10,000 grant from the UCLA Academic Senate Council on Research, with additional aid from the UCLA Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies (via a Sasakawa Fund grant).
This generous grant supported four by-invitation-only play readings:
January 2014 — TheaterLab/NYC
