You're Welcome is a collection of five 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. Each of the plays satirizes a different style of terrible theater -- full of underprepared actors, an overzealous director, self-righteous writers, and a production that is fated to fail in the most hilarious and unexpected ways.

Published Reviews

"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. FOUR STARS."

Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

"Written by a group of bright, highly imaginative and profoundly unique artists."

Perrin Drumm, Sunfiltered

"An hour-long celebration of theatrical sins."

John Del Signore, Gothamist
