The Altruistic Theatre Company – New York City, NY
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.
Thanks to all who submitted pieces, check back this weekend to see the lineup for our next brawl and to get tickets.
