The Altruists
by Street Corner Arts

May. 02 - May. 17, 2014

THE ALTRUISTSStreet Corner Arts is back again! This time with the razor-sharp wit of Nicky Silver!

The Altruists follows a group of chronic East Village protesters, marching for real or unreal causes, who lead completely self-centered lives-committing injustices identical to the ones they unthinkingly march against.

"Exhilarating! Exceedingly funny! The playwright wields his wit like a scalpel…written with the florid theatricality and seething emotional adrenaline that are the hallmarks of Silver's unique voice…" —Variety.

Directed by Benjamin Summers and Assistant Directed by Jeremy Brown--this black comedy is sure to be "dope" Lance says.
