You're Welcome: A Cycle of Bad Plays by The Debate Society

Premiered at The Brick Theater, Spring 2010

"An hour-long celebration of theatrical sins. The company’s essential, idiosyncratic charm remains irresistible." - John Del Signore, The Gothamist 

"In a sweet and funny evening of five resolutely terrible playlets, the Debaters make an affirmative case for the comic possibilities of the deflated expectation." 4 STARS - Helen Shaw, TimeOutNY

You’re Welcome is a collection of 5 small plays about creation and failure; a unified theatrical myth that tells the story of an invented band of performers and their catastrophic attempts at connection. The plays are also about love, death, desire, tragedy, comedy, drunk driving, sexiness, beauty, loss, the battle between good and evil, a baby born wearing a hat. And theater. They’re about theater. Kind of the last word on theater. This is You’re Welcome - 5 plays that pretty much nail it. You’re welcome.
