Hello my name is Jeremy Wein, I am the lead producer of Faux Snow. My prior
credits include the recent Broadway revival of Godspell, The New York City Podcast Festival, and the comedy documentary The Bitter Buddha.

Andrew Hall is a really fresh young playwright who has a very unique voice. I am so proud to be producing his show in August at the Thespis Theater Festival in New York City.

The two-hander involves two drastically different romantic hopefuls, Royd and Marquette, as they journey across the country in a post-college road trip. The show explores their fantastical imaginations as they try to communicate their feelings to each other with somewhat unexpected results. Imagine if Edward Albee wrote a show about 20 something college lovers; that is Faux Snow.

The script was first developed at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT as part of the National theater Institute's Advance Playwriting Program in Spring 2013.

This production is part of a festival, due to our short run we are unable to acquire funding through traditional investors and we want to do this right. Even the $2500 isn't quiet enough but it will get us on our way

The money is going toward:

  • Hiring A Light and Sound Designer
  • Doing A Proper Marketing Campaign
  • Doing Our Set And Costumes Right
  • If We Have Anything Left Over We Can Pay Our Very Hard Working Cast and Crew

What You Get:

We're offering to list your name on our website, listing you as a producer in our Playbill, an original song written just for you, costumes, tickets and the chance to have an offstage character named after you!

 

Other Ways You Can Help:
