The Lagniappe Project

Every week in February, the Wilma Theater will release one of our new HotHouse Shorts, digital performances devised and created by members of our acclaimed acting company.

"The Lagniappe Project" will be available beginning February 26th. Pull up a seat at this documentary feast, where performer Melanye Finister shares her mother’s recipe for Creole gumbo with residents from Northern Children’s Services, attempting to find community and comfort.

Conceived by Melanye Finister. Edited and filmed by Briana Gause.

All of the HotHouse Shorts are completely free to the public! But your donations help support Wilma’s HotHouse company and its innovative, diverse, and talented local Philadelphia artists. Please help us raise $4,000 to make exciting new programming like this possible.
