Subscension's "True West"

$3,860 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 30 people in 6 months
Created July 8, 2018
Subscension Theatre is a new company in the vibrant arts community of Philadelphia. Our mission? To create evocative work within a neopunk landscape.

Punk theatre embodies the struggle of persons wrestling against a status quo. It rejects authoritarianism, promotes non-conformity, and pushes against the idea of "selling out."

Join us as Subscension Theatre presents Sam Shepard's "True West,” a harrowing piece of familial conflict between two brothers who find themselves struggling within the confines of their own status quo. As they push and pull against a world that wants to punish them, “True West” challenges us to define what it means to love, respect, and speak to each other in a world that seems to beg us to give in to conflict.

Your support is crucial, and your donations go directly towards the production - performance rights, space rental, technical stipends, etc.

The punk movement waxes and wanes, but what is constant is the belief that pure growth comes from burning down. When it is time to grow a new crop, we must first destroy the field. As artists, we seek to challenge our audience as well as ourselves. We want to deconstruct the performer and rebuild them in order to create something new, something stronger. We want to push performance beyond any perceived limitations so that the performer can evolve, that is what Subscension aims to do with each production.

Help us break the mold as we plumb the depths to which theatre was designed to go. Thank you for your support!”
