Bottle Alley Theatre Company Austin TX
The third production from Bottle Alley Theatre Company - a play of love and love lost, escape, and memories.

  • Launched: Jan 8, 2013
  • Funding ends: Feb 7, 2013
About The Ivy House: The Ivy House is the third independent production from the Bottle Alley Theatre Company following their two-show stand at the notorious Broken Neck, Stage and most recently, Autumn. For Ivy House Bottle Alley ventures out into new and unexplored territory, settling into the eventual unknown. The Ivy House is hard to describe as so much of it is interpretive. The best description of it is a story of love and love lost, but also that of memories and escape. Seven character's stories intertwine through the past, present and future and fall safely into the confines of the Ivy House, an imaginary place where they go to re-live their memories. The play is written and directed by Chris Fontanes and features Bottle Alley alumnus actors Tim Olivares, Ariel Gilman, and Steven Cruser.

About Bottle Alley Theatre Company: Bottle Alley Theatre Company is a collection of creative minds, theatrical rebels, and college friends. We strive to push the limits of theatre and to create new and exciting collaborative works from both within the company as well as outside members. In order to have the most successful chance at presenting the play we need your support to promote, produce and fund this play. We operate outside the realm of conventional theater and as a wholly independent theater company we rely on the generosity of the public to keep us going. Every donation made to this show goes directly into the production and we know how to make every dollar go far.

Why we need your money: We are a poor theatre company trying to do big things - you can already see the problem. We are just like you - we live paycheck-to-paycheck and cannot afford that dental procedure or blown tire. We would like to own nicer clothes and new shoes. We would also like major grants to be able to drop ten thousand dollars on a single show. However, this is not yet to be. We don't want all of your hard-earned money. Spare what you can, and know that it shall go to the very grateful, who shall use it for what is absolutely needed.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With creation, comes conflict. We are a fledgling theatre company amongst a vast city littered with many amazing theatre companies. Some are massive, building huge multi-million dollar facilities. They will never have to wonder where their next show will be. Or how they'll have to scrape up a hundred bucks for seventy chairs. Other companies are like us - living show-by-show, chasing dreams, ambitious as hell. We live paycheck-to-paycheck too - our money is going into lights, chairs, programs, and promoting the hell out of this thing that we are proud to be creating.
