The Altruistic Theatre Company – New York City, NY
Hello all! After a bit of a hiatus, we are back with some exciting news! To start we have opened submissions for and will soon be announcing our next Bare Knuckle Theatre Fest! Along with Bare Knuckle’s one act festival, we are currently working on a sort of spin-off competition for actors, but we’ll have more infer on that later. We are also currently combing through scrips to find our next full length piece of socially aware candy to satiate your appetites! If anyone has written or is developing something that fits with our mission, let us know, maybe you’ll be our next Altruist! The Movement is on!
This June, we return to the island. . .
“Found adrift at sea, hallow-eyed and starved, Robin wakes in the hold of a ship. Two years before, Robin’s plane had crash landed near a deserted island, stranding him and five others. It’s the Airplane! version of Robinson Crusoe; a cold look at society, as formed and remade by idiots.”
Written by Maximilian Avery Clark
Directed by Brock H. Hill

As with all of our shows, this production works to the good of a non-profit. This time it’s the American Red Cross. You can help the ARC by volunteering (visit nyredcross.org for more info) or right this second you can donate 10 dollars by texting “REDCROSS” to 90999. Technology is the best.
It’s official our contenders have been chosen for our fifth theatrical deathmatch.
This event puts company against company in a late-night no-holds-barred theatrical throw-down where YOU make the call. Five separate producers will go head to head with five 10-20 minute plays, but only one will win the cash prize and your respect.
Max Schloner: “Clay Pigeons“
Josh Billig: “A New Revolution“
Axel Arth: “Insomnia“
Ron Burch: “The Last Egg“
Tarun Shanker: “The Many Universes of Elizabeth Brooks“
One of these companies will walk away with a lot of cash, you will walk away with a quality night of theatre you won’t soon forget. Doors open at 10:15pm, but come early and stay late enjoying drink specials all night at the Producer’s Club Lounge.
Bonus points given if you dress in the theme.
Thank you to all of our Altruists who came together to help us fund our upcoming show: Civilization!
With six days left and two weeks before rehearsals start, we thank you all and hope that you’ll be able to check us out when the festival starts.
