"Human", a new play by Alaska Reece Vance, was accepted into the New York International Fringe Festival, 2014!  Our group of 15 "starving artists" needs help with expenses for travel and lodging in the Big Apple. 

We are excited and so honored to have this opportunity to be involved with FringeNYC, the largest multi-arts festival in North America.  We believe this script sheds light on the complicated nature of being “Human”, the challenges of self-discovery, and the affect we have on the world. We embrace the uniqueness of this piece of theatre in which characters from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream intermingle with characters of the present, and extraordinary problems of the fairy world are explored alongside modern-day struggles, such as independence for a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic teenager, friendship and trust.

We hope this play will mean as much to our audiences as it does to us, and we cannot wait to share it with the world at the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival! 

About the Play :

The untold story of the changeling boy from A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM comes to life in this genre-bending fantasy.  Battling fairy monarchs. Forbidden boundaries. Passionate desires and a planet on the brink. Will the changling boy survive Puck's savage game?
