Hello everyone, and thanks so much for supporting! We've been recovering from the fundraiser combined with the completely sold out week of shows, but expect your personal thank-yous very soon. We can't even begin to express how thankful we are, but we'll try anyway! Check the video out below, and please do stay in touch.


The entire (exhausted) Bloodthirsty Fiends team


April 18, 2017

Hey everyone! Thanks SO much for your support - we have had an unbelievable run of Bloodthirsty Fiends! The show was so popular at the Cohen New Works Festival that we were asked at the very last minute to do an extra show. We're so happy that all of the folks who waited in line for hours were able to get in to see the production, and we're absolutely floored by the response we've been getting.

There are only 3 days left to donate - for those of you who already have supported us, first of all, THANK YOU! Making art like this is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive, and making the show free to everyone is an amazing opportunity...with your support, we've been able to make this all happen and a very high level of polish, and we're so incredibly thankful!! We hope that this won't be the last time we do this thing, so you're investing in our future as well.

We can still use your help! Please let your friends, neighbors, neighbors' friends, neighbors' dogs, friends' friends, about this project. Share on Facebook, Twitter, forward this email, go shout from the roof of your office! We only have THREE DAYS left, so let's power through to the end.

If you're seeing this and you have yet to donate, please consider doing so! It's completely tax-deductible, and helps support young artists striving for a career connecting with their audiences and making meaningful and relevant work!

Thanks so much!!

Hey friends and generous supporters! Since we launched this project, so much has been happening in the Bloodthirsty Fiends production dungeons! Since last you heard from us, Grendel has grown horns, Beowulf and Grendel's​ mother have had some disagreements, and our robot army has been hard at work building set pieces. More updates to come soon! Please help us out by sharing with as many folks as you can - we can use all the help we can get! Many thanks from the Bloodthirsty Fiends team
