"Under morphine, Billy had a dream of giraffes in a garden. The giraffes were following gravel paths, were pausing to munch sugar pears from treetops. Billy was a giraffe, too. He ate a pear. It was a hard one. It fought back against his grinding teeth. It snapped in juicy protest. The giraffes accepted Billy as one of their own, as a harmless creature as preposterously specialized as themselves."

Hey fans, friends, and family!
Here’s the new promotional pic for True False Theatre’s production of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five.

Formally the historic Living Theatre, C.O.W. is now owned by Stephen Michael Rondel & Tyler Maganzini. the 3,500 square foot basement is decorated with a rotating art show. The venue focuses on the visual arts, showcasing New York City and International artists (all of the artwork by the way is for sale).

Hello True False Theatre Fans,
We regret to announce that David Kubicka will no longer be playing the role of Billy Pilgrim in the upcoming production ofKurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five as part of the 2013 New York International Fringe Festival. The talented Jamie Effros, who was originally playing Kilgore Trout and Howard C. Campbell, Jr. will be taking over the role of Billy Pilgrim. Bruce Bluett, an excellent (and lucky for us, available) actor, will be taking over the roles of Kilgore Trout and Howard C. Campbell, Jr. We are saddened by Mr. Kubicka’s departure but are excited for the new energy in the rehearsal room and eventually on stage that Jamie Effros will bring to the production.

There are 5 days left to donate to our IndieGoGo campaign and we’re nearly at our goal! The 2013 Fringe Fest is coming up fast (tickets go on sale in a week!) so we put together this fun video asking everyone to donate. You guys are awesome and we couldn’t do this without you! Enjoy!
Look fans, we know we hound you sometimes to to donate to our production, but you’re the reason our small nonprofit theatre company has the support (financially & enthusiastically) to put on productions such as Slaughterhouse-Five at the NYC Fringe Festival this summer. So in asking for your support were posting the 5 Reasons you should contribute to Slaughterhouse-Five's IndieGoGo campaign.
- Our Production is Part of The New York International Fringe Festival- This celebrated international festival is the big leagues for off & off-off broadway productions. We are honored to be a part of it, so we want to represent True False Theatre as best we can as our team puts together Slaughterhouse-Five.
- Our Show Raises Awareness About Soldier, War, and PTSD- Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five isn’t a goofy sci-fi tale, but a serious study our WWII soldiers returning home after the devastation across Europe. We’re sharing Billy Pilgrim’s story to give audiences a deeper understanding of the pain, fear, and detachment American soldiers with PTSD felt and still feel after returning home from WWII and the current wars we still fight.
- Donations Are Tax Deductible- Any donation $50 or over is tax deductible, so help out our non-profit theatre company and get a little break.
- Donors Get Perks in Exchange For Their Donations- A special thanks on our website, physical copy of the script signed by the cast, a digital edition of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five. These are perks you get for donating the bare-bones amounts to our campaign. To see the good stuff, refer to our IndieGoGo campaign by clicking here.
- Know You Contributed To An Amazing Show & That You Helped To Create It- You guys are awesome! Did we mention that? Your donation could lead to a key prop, or an epic costume, or a sweet poster posted throughout NYC. When you donate you know your money went straight to the production of Slaughterhouse-Five, and we couldn’t have done it without you.
Tickets for True False Theatre’s production of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five at the 2013 New York Fringe Festival go on sale July 19th! Mark your calendars people!
