-n: a group of risk-taking artists working together to tell compelling stories imaginatively by creating, supporting, and producing each others work in readings, workshops, and short run full productions.
In 2010 on a train bound for nowhere (OK it was bound for Washington Heights), while complaining about some massive catastrophe, two long time friends had an idea:
Friend 1: "Why don't we just produce the show ourselves?"
Friend 2: "OK but first we need a company name." (Clearly we had our priorities straight)
Friend 1: "I always liked the word Monsterpiece..."
And that's all it took. Who said what and exactly how it all went down, who knows, but what is clear is there was no turning back. If we said it on the train then it had to happen.
