Fucking A Kickstarter Campaign
After a successful Midwest Premiere in 2011 of Beauty of the Fatherby Pulitzer Winner Nilo Cruz, UrbanTheater Company (UTC) continues SEASON SIX with the highly anticipated production of Fucking A by Pulitzer Prize (Topdog/Underdog) and MacArthur Genius Award recipient, Suzan-Lori Parks. Fucking A will be performed in association with Pegasus Players’ new home at 4520 N. Beacon Street (formerly the historic Hull House).
Fucking A is set in a post apocalyptic world, Hester, an Abortionist, must take life in order to save the life of her imprisoned son. Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s, The Scarlet Letter, Fucking A explores societal corruption, sexual politics and the enduring love of one mother for her child. Provocative and redemptive, this is a theatrical event not to be missed.
UrbanTheater Company has assembled a top-notch cast and production team, but we need your HELP to get us through the beginning stages of this production. Every penny you donate will go directly to the costs necessary to making our production a success. Unfortunately, if our goal isn’t met before targeted deadline, we don’t get a penny. You can donate as little as $1 to as much as you are capable of. Every little bit counts, and we would love your help in making this amazing production come to life.
