Co-Producers Karen Sabo and Derek Davidson are pleased and excited to be taking Derek’s newest play, Bumbershoot, to the New York International Fringe Festival. In August 2012, we will perform in a yet-undisclosed theatre in lower Manhattan. Stay tuned for updates about our performance venue and schedule, and in the meantime, check out the FringeNYC website at http://fringenyc.org/.
Bumbershoot, a neo-noir amalgam of dark and really dark, weirdo-humor and sudden violence, offers up a meditation on just how banal the banality of evil can be, on how good people—or ordinary, not-so-good people—can do very, very bad things, and how the culture of fear can mold folks into the opposite of themselves, into the very thing they most fear.
We need your help to make this project happen! It will take a little over $12,000 to get this show to New York City, and we ask for your financial support at whatever level you can give. Please visit our Kickstarter crowdfunding website, and check out our various giving opportunities. Our thank-you rewards vary from a signed picture of the cast and crew in NYC to actually owning one of the actors. Well, symbolically, anyway. Contact producer Karen Sabo with details or questions about how to make out your generous check:
