Over the past few weeks Colt Coeur has been visiting public schools all over Brooklyn and speaking to hundreds of young people. Despite our youth as a company, educational programming has been at the core of our efforts since the beginning. It is personal for us, as many of us attended under-resourced urban schools and free arts programs were our lifeline.
This year, we are thrilled to present the culminating performance of our 3rd Annual Play-making Workshop with students ages 10-15 at the legendary St. Ann’s Warehouse, across the street from our DUMBO studio. The event will take place Friday, March 29th at 6:30pm (reception) with a 7pm performance. The event is free however seating is limited. Email email@example.com to make a reservation.
In order to offer this 5-day intensive entirely free-of-charge, we need to raise some funds. Here’s a sense of what it costs:
1 teaching artist for 1 week: $250 (We need at least 4!)
Lunch for 1 student for 1 week: $50 (We have at least 20 students!)
Props, costumes, ink cartridges, etc.: $300
Bare bones crew at St. Ann’s: $500
Please be generous and join me in supporting the next generation of theatre artists!
We are also overjoyed to announce our next Play Hotel— Everything is Ours, by Nikole Beckwith. The play is an ultra-contemporary, upstairs-downstairs comedy of manners, and a frighteningly accurate exploration of the post-Gen X state of alienation. It will be read Monday, March 18th at 115 West 45th Street, 11th Floor, NY, NY 10036. As always, we would love to have you there and limited rsvps will be accepted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Is there such a thing as a bad seed?
Close your eyes and count to three.
Lucy’s a child, and a child’s a person, and people can do the ugliest things.
Charlotte’s an expert in ugly things. And the bloody, funny, terrible chase is on.
Radically imaginative and achingly plain, RECALL explores our need to feel connected, understood, and loved. No matter the damage, no matter the cost.
With: Katya Campbell, Owen Campbell, Jordyn DiNatale, Caleb Scott & Colleen Werthmann

A darkly funny and unflinching portrait of a couple struggling to hold on to one another without losing themselves. Fish Eye explodes the traditional chronology of romance and offers a modern take on the impossible exhilaration of love - when nothing means everything and everything means nothing, and the entire world shrinks down to a single moment in which we decide what to keep and what to leave behind.
