RADIO COTE: 24-hour NEWSROOM, Co-Op Theatre East's series of radio plays written & performed within 24 hours, tweaking the news of the day to imagine a different world of tomorrow, will present five evenings of four new radio plays each. The results range from the absurdly wacky to the poignantly reflective, from apocalyptic to aspirational, but they're always clever, fun, and inspired.

Over 50 artists will be involved in Radio COTE over the course of the FRIGID festival, mixing and matching in the roles of playwright, director, and actor, to create new collaborations, with all shows sound-designed and engineered by producer Robert A. K. Gonyo. Join us at each performance for a live recording of four brand-new, immediately-topical radio plays-and then come back for subsequent performances, because each show will be completely different, written from the most recent news of each day! Present your program from a previous Radio COTE in FRIGID performance for $5 tickets.

Co-Op Theatre East ( believes in the power of art to foster a dialogue for social change. Founded in April 2008 by Casey Cleverly, Robert A. K. Gonyo and Ashley Marinaccio, three classmates in the Performance Studies graduate program at NYU, COTE was formed to create theatre that actively works to challenge the status quo and create lasting social change. We provide an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on our way to creating collaborative answers.
