Preview of THE ALTRUISTS
Aurora Providence :: 276 Westminster St :: Fri 7pm, Sa 6pm :: $10
The Altruists revolves around a dedicated, if disorganized and demented, group of young radicals. These are the kids who protest. They protest arts funding and arms funding. They protest school cutbacks and AIDS cutbacks and welfare cutbacks. They march for gay rights and children’s rights and Women Against Drunk Drivers. But their morality is put to the test one day when Sydney, a shallow, anorexic soap-opera actress, fires a gun into the hulking body of her sleeping boyfriend.
In collaboration with Aurora, Burbage’s theatrical residence in downtown Providence, Burbage produces innovative and spare, actor-centric and inherently theatrical plays that speak to the culturally rich and diverse artistic community of Providence RI. Burbage makes theatre accessible and affordable for a new generation of theatre-goer.
