    We did it!

    We were accepted to NY Summerfest, a premiere festival in New York City. Maximalista (#MentalHealthPlay) is happening at The Hudson Guild Theatre in Chelsea.

    After an extended run (due to it's great reception) at Manhattan Rep Theatre, the creative force behind this show, playwright Ash Sanborn and director Cammerron Baits, are bringing the show to a larger audience at NY Summerfest by the New York Theatre Festival. 


    We need you

    Our goal is ambitious, but all it will take is 99 donors in for $100 tax-deductible to achieve it.

    Of course any donation helps, and your $10 matched by others will go a long way.

    Our ethic is to pay actors and crew -- the human beings who make the show happen. There are lots of hungry actors in New York City who just want to be seen and heard. We have some of the best audition for our shows, and we want to value their time, their passion, their soul baring on the stage with at least a stipend to reflect how much we value the skill, talent, and dedication of each member of our team. 

    We're developing partnerships with some of the best mental health organizations in the City. 

    Publicity comes at a price. Now more than ever, it's vital to have butts in the seats, and to get some of the right potential producers there. 


    We're doing this right

    The festival by its virtue requires simplicity in sets, props and costumes, but we're going to find the best quality in each element we can, because this time we have a big vision. 


    Our dream is to get the right producers in the seats so we can take this highly regarded one-act play to a full length full run in New York City, then develop a tour, a regional run, or something no one has yet invented. Whether in the theater district or in an offbeat location in lower Manhattan, this is the moment we could attract members to our team who can take the show to the next level. 


    Your tax-deductible donation will fuel our long, hard hours and set us up for our best shot. If you're in for $100 or more, you'll become a vital part of our team as we take our next step. 


    Thank you for your contribution. It means more than you know and will open up the possibilities that have opened up due to our long hours and hard work.
