Brooklyn-Based Theatre Company Colt Coeur Using Kickstarter to Raise Funds for 4th World Premiere Play

WE’RE NOT FAMOUS AND WE DON’T HAVE FAMOUS LAST NAMES…
THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER MOVIE STAR RAISING MONEY FOR THEIR MUSIC VIDEO/RECORD/NOVEL!

Brooklyn-based theater company
COLT COEUR is raising funds on KICKSTARTER

TO PRODUCE THEIR 4th WORLD PREMIERE PLAY:

DOWNTOWN/BROADWAY THESPS ALEX TIMBERS, ERIC BOGOSIAN, MICHAEL GREIF, CELIA KEENAN-BOLGER, BILLY CRUDUP,
ROGER REES & JACK O’BRIEN get behind rising talent!

The 3-year old company, helmed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, has used Kickstarter twice before to raise funds for the world premieres  of Lucas Kavner’s Fish Eye (New York Magazine championed as one of the year’s best)and Eliza Clark’s RECALL, as well as their play-making intensive offered free-of-charge to NYC teens.  Despite being rich in talent, no one in the company ‘comes from money’ or has access to major donors who can write big checks. Instead, with funding goals ranging from 12k to 18k, roughly over 200 distinct donors have contributed an average of $100.

The company’s campaigns feature unique rewards that range from custom-made cartoons by playwright/cartoonist Nikole Beckwith to the opportunity to have a 10-minute play made just for you.  You can also donate for the reward of getting to be an ‘Intern for an Afternoon’ on the company’s planned production, Everything is Ours.  In fact, Kickstarter is just the kind of billion-dollar idea the central characters in Nikole Beckwith’s comedy might have come up with.

A smart, supremely funny contemporary comedy of manners, Everything is Ours explores a Post Gen-X state of alienation in the face of success.
