Altruists is a vital and provocative play that revolves around a dedicated, if disorganized and demented, group of young radicals. These are the kids who protest. They protest arts funding and arms funding. They protest school cutbacks and AIDS cutbacks and welfare cutbacks. They march for gay rights and children's rights and Women Against Drunk Drivers. However, they are not always prepared and on this particular Sunday, their morality is put to the test.
"Exhilarating! Exceedingly funny! The playwright wields his wit like a scalpel…written with the florid theatricality and seething emotional adrenaline that are the hallmarks of Silver's unique voice…" - Variety
"Hilarious!…Classic Silver to the core" - Time Out
"Hysterical…The Altruists revels in political incorrectness. Nicky Silver is the bad-boy playwright of Off-Broadway" - NY Daily News
"Hilarious…the extravagantly amusing Nicky Silver has written one of his most consistent explosions of dark yet good-natured satire…we are carried aloft on the demented joy of [his] hyper articulate imagination" ~ NY Newsday
