About this project

Brave New Productions brings this larger-than-life comedy to Montreal as a grand finale to their 10 year anniversary celebration – a celebration that started with Yasmina Reza’s “ART”, and culminates in "Done to Death", our 13th production. With a mandate to bring the unconventional and entertaining to life, our latest show promises to be an exciting evening of laughter and fun!

Our show is set to run from January 10th-18th, 2014 at the MAI Theatre (3680, rue Jeanne-Mance) The cast is in place, an amazing crew has been assembled... But we need your help to bring "Done to Death" to life!

Since the inception of Brave New Productions in 2003 with a little show called "Fairy's Tale" at the Montreal Fringe Festival, we have been bringing original and contemporary stories to life on stage, while supporting local artists and nurturing new talent .

From our humble beginnings, we've been able to push ourselves even more: we brought a new take to an Oscar Wilde classic ("Being Earnest"), to premiering poignant work such as “The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later” and “Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays”, and of course our biggest achievement yet: performing Yazmina Reza’s “ART” at the 2013 Nuit Blanche Festival, culminating in a nomination at the Montreal English Theatre Awards (Outstanding Set Design: Independent Category).

Which bring us to our latest and most ambitious project yet!

"Done to Death" is a dark, witty fun play, and bigger than anything we've done before. Special effects, costumes and sets are just a few of the costs we need help covering. So far, all the shows we’ve done haven’t required elaborate sets and costumes but "Done to Death" is an entirely different type of challenge. We really want to push ourselves to bring this show to life and your contribution will help us turn our vision into a reality.

Risks and challenges

This is Brave New Productions first foray into crowdfunding and we're very much excited to raise some much needed funds to make our show the best it can be! All our shows until now have been payed out of pocket by the producers, and cast and crew have donated their time over the years to make all our shows as successful as they can. Our passion for the stage has kept us going for a long time, but we hope we can continue to create more shows that not only let us express ourselves in stage, but bring joy and entertainment to the community and raise the standards of independent theatre.

With your contribution, you can help us realize our vision and give us the support we need to keep going!
