FEATURING DAVID CAUDLE, ALVIN ENG, ROBERT HEIDE, JOHN JESURUN, KESTUTIS NAKAS, KEMBRA PFAHLER, MICHAEL SMALL, and TWEED THEATERWORKS 

Some of the most important playwrights and performers in avant-garde theater present staged readings of new works in progress at the intimate, ultimate downtown theatrical event: Writers Block 2016 presented by Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project to showcase the vision of contemporary writers, performers and artists, many of whom got their start in the nightclubs, seminal performance spaces, and theaters in the EV/LES. “Theater is alive and well and thriving in the East Village,” says Jane Friedman, founder of Howl! Happening. “The performance scene is flourishing in spite of the glass and metal monstrosities growing up around it.”

The staged readings series is a benefit for the Actors Fund’s Howl! HELP, providing emergency financial assistance and social service support to artists who have made or continue to make their careers in New York’s East Village and Lower East Side arts communities. Howl! HELP is administered by the Actors Fund and 100% ticket sales benefit the Actors Fund.
