About this project

Plastic Flamingo Theatre Company is taking Fit a play by Erin Austin, directed by Ross Evans, to the New York International Fringe Festival in August 2011. Help us reach our DREAM PRODUCTION GOAL of 2,300 dollars.

 Fit is a play about three generations of women, all at the age of twenty. Mary tends to her grieving grandfather, Fiona grapples with motherhood, and Lauren prepares to flee. Celtic music, dresses, and mental disorders pass through all three women. Will this granddaughter, mother, and grandmother, all at the age of twenty, overcome their ghosts and find a good fit? Austin's play celebrates the tradition of Celtic music and the uniquely comical and often mystical culture of Scotland. Also, it explores the deeply rooted psychological emotions tied into a woman's quest for beauty and physical perfection- emotions that defy age, time, and country.

While every member of our cast and crew are working gratis, we still need funds for festival fees, marketing, costumes, lighting and set.  

Three college seniors started Plastic Flamingo Theatre Company at the University of Miami in 2007 and moved it to New York right after graduation. Today the company provides an artistic voice for emerging playwrights, directors, actors, and designers. By supporting Plastic Flamingo's second entry in the NYC Fringe Festival, you'll be feeding a company that fosters new work and new talent, while generating theatre that is provocative and passionate.
