5 plays go in. 3 plays come out. Your vote decides.

SERIALS @ The Flea is a raucous late night play competition featuring The Bats and some of NYC’s hottest young playwrights and directors. This event runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11 p.m.

In SERIALS @ The Flea, five teams of Bats perform original ten-minute episodic plays. The audience votes for its three favorite plays, which return the next week with a new installment. The teams with the two least popular stories must likewise come back the following week, but with entirely different serialized plays.

Created by Bats Dominic Spillane & Stephen Stout, in collaboration with Jim Simpson.
Produced by Matt Stango & Madeline Mahoney.

*All tickets include an additional $2 Theater Restoration Fee, which keeps the lights on in our new digs. Thank you.
