It’s BACK!

The groundhog didn’t hide because it saw its shadow, it hid ┬ábecause the Bare-Knuckle Theatre Festival has come out of hibernation!

After a three month break, Altruistic’s hit late-night one act competition is back and harder-core than ever. Playwrights don’t miss your opportunity to showcase your talent to a packed house and maybe win our unrivaled cash prize.


Five shows go in, one show comes out on top.

The Rules

  • Submit your best 10-20 minute play. After 20 minutes we will fade to black.
  • Bring your own cast. We can supply a stage manager the night of.
  • “Bare-knuckle” plays require minimal sets (Tables and chairs provided), no major lighting or sound cues.
  • No submission fee, only paying attendees can vote.
  • Any theme or topic, no casting limitations.
  • Winner by audience ballot gets 50% of the profits, so bring fans.
