When a cross-continental drug trade goes south, ruthless West Coast crime boss Tony Sargossi finds himself in the debt of the most terrifying warlord on earth, Genghis Chang. Under the diplomacy of violence, Sargossi employs a rogues gallery of colorful criminals, led by the sharp-witted Jack Thrash, to weed out the worm in their barrel of rotten apples. All the while, the intrepid Detective Slade is hot their trail after an anonymous tip from a Sargossi turncoat. This ensemble of hard-boiled, double-crossing lowlifes each have their own ulterior motives, but they have one goal in common: GET. THAT. SNITCH.

Directed by Alex Vazquez and written by Achilles Capone, Get. That. Snitch. is the spring 2013 full length play selection for Brand New Theatre at the University of Southern California. BNT is a dynamic theatre organization dedicated to producing creative, provocative, and occasionally insane new works of stagecraft. It is entirely student run, staffed, cast, and crewed. Due to the especially ambitious and unorthodox nature of this play, BNT needs YOUR HELP to make our bloodthirsty dreams come true! 

Here’s what we need to makes this happen:

-Blood. Lots of it. There are stab wounds, severed ears, gushing arteries, and of course, our own passionately bleeding hearts to accommodate.

-Bullets. Blank ones. For the safety of our actors and audience. There are over 300 gunshots in this production, and we don’t want any of them to be missed (or miss their mark). 

-Costumes. The only thing more vibrant and exciting than the clothes in this production are the people inside them. We may have the scum of the earth in this play, but we want them to be the best looking scum of the earth you ever did see.

-Lights. So you can, you know, see what we want you to see. And everything else we don’t want you to see too.

-Set. Three tiers, 6 foot platforms, ladders, hidden doors, and revolving furniture. Our underworld jungle gym will be as captivating and challenging for our audience as it is for our actors. It is after all, called a “play”, isn’t it?

Here are the things we do have, and are endlessly excited about:

-SPACE: The Massman Theater. The massive (and massively fun) black box theater smack dab in the center of the USC campus; a veritable cathedral of carnage, mayhem, and down right dirty deeds. Or it will be at least, when we’re through with it.

Risks and challenges

This is the beauty: there's little to no risk! We've already been booked the space, so we're gonna have to put something up in there on the weekend of Feb 21st. We're just hoping to put on as great a play as possible, and that'll come true with the money we're hoping to raise.
