Kick-Start Us

You know us: We love giving back to people. We’ve donated to charity, we give to playwrights, we help young companies. We give and we give and we give. Which as a lifestyle is admirable, but as an economic model is a bit shaky.

So now we’re in a bind. We’re producing our EPIC comedy, Civilization! in the Planet Connections Festival and we want to do it justice. But as it turns out, trees and props and stuff cost money. Now we have never lost money on a production, thanks to you our fans, but like most non-profits we count on kind hearted people like you to get by. Which is why we’ve launched a project on Kickstarter.com

We don’t need much, just a couple of bucks here and there. If our hundreds of fans just gave 3 dollars, we’d be there today. So that’s all we want. $3 to stage the greatest comedy in history. Please, right this second, put down that $5 mocha frappachino, and help us out. (I don’t know why all nonprofits assume that’s what you drink every morning, but why not). Take a look at our project and see if there isn’t something you can do to help us out.

THANKS!

Grab your jammies and put on your war-paint, the city’s rawest one-act festival is back for another of its late night theatre smackdowns. We scour the city for the best one act plays from new and established writers and puts them head to head for your amusement. Previous bouts have been action packed and extreme, but nothing can compare to this: BKTF PILLOW FIGHT EDITION.
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.

The contenders are:

Abigail Taylor: “Hard to Get”
Julia Blauvelt: “Quitting Time
Mila Golubov: “Janet’s Cookie
Alexander Kveton: “Dick
Michael Devito: “The Alley

[Euphemism much?]

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.
