The Cafe Collections is a play created from several deconstructed plays written by Chuck Mee.  Follow 5 couples as they fall in, out and everything between of love. Scored by a live band, and tangled with movement and bits of poetry we hope you will leave with hearts feeling uplifted. 

Through this story we're exploring the universal themes of Love, and what it means to love in an age of online dating (for more information on the (re)making project please visit http://www.charlesmee.org/about.shtml)

We are going to immerse our audience the world of the play by creating a real pop-up cafe.  We are partnering with a several local Brooklyn vendors to set up a Smorgasburg-like food lineup: coffee, teas, doughnuts, pastries.  We hope to get your heads up out of your phones and into what's happening right beside, behind and in front of you! 

In order to build this cafe we need an open space. 

Bat Haus Coworking and Event Space is the perfect partner for this project. Located in the heart of Bushwick, Bat Haus shares the same values as our team and we cannot wait to work with them.  

Risks and challenges

We have an incredible team pulled together to make this community event happen. All our actors and designers are volunteering their time. Our band and our production team are too! This is project about love, made from love.

But, building a cafe from scratch takes money, and that's where we need you!

The Money Situation:
Bat Haus Space for 1 night $900
Transforming the Space into a Cafe: $400
Rehearsal Space (if you want some amazing movement) $200

Invest in this community event that we hope will bring the classic cafe feel back to the cafe. Locally grown theatre does not happen without locals. Thank you so much for your support sip by sip!
