My name is Vishal Saini, and I am writing you today in celebration of my friend and colleague, Darcy Evans. Last week, Alberta Theatre Projects’ Executive and Artistic Director sadly lost his months-long battle with cancer.

Darcy joined Alberta Theatre Projects in 2018 and brought an immense passion and more than 20 years of experience as an actor, director, and administrator in the theatre community. His passion drove him to accomplish so much with the company.

In the face of his ongoing personal challenge, Darcy continued to come to work every day and fight for the company he cared so deeply about. His legacy will run deep within the Alberta Theatre Projects family, the Calgary community, and the national theatre landscape.

Darcy often told me that he had great confidence in the future of Alberta Theatre Projects and knew that exciting days lay ahead. His mission of creating a world-class contemporary theatre turned into reality and it is now our responsibility to ensure his legacy continues.

In honour of Darcy, we are proud to announce the establishment of the Darcy Evans Legacy Fund, which will provide support and develop opportunities for future theatre artists and administrators, inclusive of all disciplines, from page to stage of play development.

Kicking off this initiative within only a few days following the tragic news of Darcy’s passing, donations have been committed to begin this fund. We have already received an extremely generous offer to match the first $20,000 of donations received on Giving Tuesday towards this initiative. We believe in building this fund to continue Darcy’s legacy, and we hope you will join us in continuing to make Darcy’s vision a reality.

To be part of this amazing journey and to honour the legacy of Darcy, we invite you to make a donation to the Darcy Evans Legacy Fund. All donations made on Giving Tuesday will be put towards this fund. The opportunity to donate directly to this fund will remain open after Giving Tuesday as well. This is your opportunity to be a part of the future of theatre right here in Calgary.

Darcy’s passion was boundless. On behalf of his entire family, I am so thrilled that this Legacy Fund will enable Darcy’s vision, spirit and hard work to live on, and help ensure that Alberta Theatre Projects remains a vital, exciting, world-class arts organization. Thank you to everyone who has helped spearhead this initiative, and to those who contribute to it in his name. We can think of no more fitting way to honour Darcy’s memory.
