Fridge Festival

  • IRT Theater 154 Christopher Street 3B New York, NY, 10014 United States (map)

The Arctic Group 1st New York International FRIDGE Festival
August 31 through September 10, 2017
AT IRT THEATRE (154 Christopher Street, 3B)

Featuring works by playwrights including Matthew Minnicino, Daniel Talbott, Celine Song, Katie Cappiello, Korde A. Tuttle, and 5 selects out of an incredible amount of excellent submission.

Born in response to the news that the NY Fringe Festival would not take place in the summer of 2017, The FRIDGE Festival is a multidisciplinary theater festival which will feature new works. We place no restrictions on pieces and are excited to present a wide variety of genres. We do, however, require that all plays include (nay, feature) a fridge.


Half of all performances will be FILL OUR FRIDGE nights; in which tickets can be purchased with non-perishable goods instead of money. These donations will be delivered to a food bank local to the theater. FILL OUR FRIDGE is our way to solidify our belief that The Arts play an essential role in the community and in anticipation of National Hunger Month.

As you surely know, a theater festival is a sizeable project. We hope that you see the merits of THE FRIDGE FEST and that you can help us fund it. 

Any donation over $200 will enter you or your company in our Super Hot Cocoa Club of Sponsors. Members of The Club have unlimited VIP passes to all shows and will have their names featured on our website and in our programs.
