Amoralfest 2013: Murder in the First

The Amoralists Theatre Company is proud to present AMORALFEST 2013: MURDER IN THE FIRST, a festival of full-length play readings cultivated from work presented this past year at the Amoralab. 

Looking back over the diverse and powerful material performed in the Amoralab since last June, a few plays shared certain themes on violence that suggested a conversation worth having and thus was born MURDER IN THE FIRST, the title of our inaugural AMORALFEST.  

These plays are funny, dangerous, raw, and generally preoccupied with murder - be it via assassination, hate crime, or good old fashioned kitchen knife.  Like all the plays we curate at the Amoralab, these plays are argument starters that exist in a world of ambiguous morality and where answers, if they exist at all, are inflammatory.  We invite you this April to come down to the Lower East Side with us to light a match and see what catches fire.

The following plays will be presented as rehearsed and directed readings performed by The Amoralists ensemble and invited guests. Please reserve your seat for any or all of the following performances:

7:00 pm: THE STRANGLER by Joe Waechter
