The folks at Tennessee Women's Theater Project have dreamed up a pretty fascinating project, and with just 55 hours to go, they're more than three-quarters of the way to fulfilling their $8,000 Kickstarter campaign.

A little bit about the project, from the Kickstarter page:

At Tennessee Women's Theater Project, if we see a story that needs telling, we don't ask can we do this? We ask how soon? Nashville’s immigrant population has increased sharply in recent years. New waves of Kurdish, Sudanese, Somali and Bhutanese immigrants have joined established populations of Hispanic, Egyptian and Korean people. The impact on Middle Tennessee has been enormous. Lifelong residents are faced with a changing Nashville, as they encounter people who look and dress differently, speak different languages, eat different foods, play different music, follow different customs. Not everyone is comfortable with this change. So, the company has commissioned playwrights Sara Sharpe and Christine Mather to create a play that examines Nashville's immigration experience from the point of view of its new Americans. Voices of Nashville: Immigration and Community will have its world premiere in our home theater in Nashville in October. After that, it will tour community centers such as Nashville's new Casa Azafrán, as well as public and private schools, churches and social organizations. Our goal is to make as many tour performances as possible absolutely FREE.
