“The writing here is insightful and often funny.” – The New York Times
“The Spring Fling has its S*IT together. Not only are all of the pieces thoughtful, but the overall production values make for a cohesive and enjoyable evening of theatre. Producers Allyson Morgan and Mara Kassin have assembled a stellar team of playwrights, performers and directors to bring these works to life… The Spring Fling includes work by artists who are simply good at what they do. This evening of quick and high-quality work is well worth your time and attention.” – Theatre Is Easy
“Shows like ‘Spring Fling’ are rare. Indomitably weird and high-brow, but without being esoteric to the point of pretension. The writing is unique, the direction excellent, and the cast on-point. I highly recommend it if you need to see theatre that is unlike every other show on or off Broadway. It’s what I wish every one-act festival could be. This was a venue for honest theatrical experimentation, performed by people who unquestionably knew what they were doing. I love that. I recommend checking out F* It Club’s work in future.” – On Stage Blog
“A good crop of plays, all featuring moments of excellence, and some transcending the limits of a one-act play in to being something more. What’s always so nice about F*It Club is the overall tone of the evening. Their works are endearing, unique, and worth the experiment to go and see. … keep a look out for their work in future.” – Popdust
IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village, IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.
