OFF OFF BROADWAY BABY!
Where brutal theater lives.
29th Street Rep
29th St Rep is having another one of our infamous "Plays In Motion" Play Reading Series. These are 4 plays never before done in NYC. They promise to be visceral, "down and dirty" and yes, BRUTAL. Come with a hot dolly, have some brownies, drink some soda and listen to some in-your-face theater. And the readings are FREE. That's right, tough guy, FREE!

"Rantoul And Die is a rant of the highest magnitude...diving off a building into a glass of water. I know I'd pay to see a guy do that" -Tom Waits
