A CYCLE OF BAD PLAYS BY THE DEBATE SOCIETY
You’re Welcome is a collection of 5 small plays about creation and failure; a unified theatrical myth that tells the story of an invented band of performers and their catastrophic attempts at connection. The plays are also about love, death, desire, tragedy, comedy, drunk driving, sexiness, beauty, loss, the battle between good and evil, a baby born wearing a hat. And theater. They’re about theater. Kind of the last word on theater. This is You’re Welcome - 5 plays that pretty much nail it. You’re welcome.
You’re Welcome was a Dixon Place Mondo Cané! Commission, made possible with generous support from NYSCA, a state agency: The Jerome Foundation: The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation & the Peg Santvoord Foundation.
An hour-long celebration of theatrical sins. The company’s essential, idiosyncratic charm, embodied by effervescent lead performers Paul Thureen and Hannah Bos, remains irresistible.
