A Day Choc-Full of Theatre!

Just a quick note before I head out to my show- come see the Ex Libris Theatre's Trinity@Trinity this afternoon at 3:30p!! Yesterday's whirlwind writing, rehearsing and staging process yielded us three awesome short plays, and at $5 (with $1 of each admission going to the church's soup kitchen), how can you say no?

A message from our Artistic Director:

Yesterday, at Trinity Lower East Side church, fifteen of us gathered to write some plays. There were three writers, three directors, and nine actors.

The topics were the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The plays were set in three spaces throughout the church, each with a three-person cast.

Everyone was given free reign to write and create what they wanted, utilizing their randomly chosen topics, spaces, and actors.

Going into the weekend, there was no tangible way to know what to expect. Yesterday, each and every actor, writer, and director turned it out --

Now we have three brand new site-specific plays for you.

Come see what your friends have been working on.

It's $5 at the door. $1 from each admission goes directly to the church's SAFH soup kitchen, which feeds homeless New Yorkers Monday through Friday!

Please, please join us. Most likely, if you're getting this message, one of the artists involves really likes you. And don't you want to witness their fantastic work?

I hope to see as many of you as possible tomorrow! You won't be disappointed.

Very Sincerely,

Richard Patterson

Artistic Director, Ex Libris Theatre Company

AND THEN, since you're so fired up from the first awesome play of the day, take a quick break to grab a bite to eat, and then head over to the Ellen Stewart Theatre at La Mama to check out the 5:45p opening of Spellbound: A Musical Adventure, co-produced by Mind the Art Entertainment

Tickets are available at or at the door. $15 online, $18 at the door. Hope to see you there!
