July 17th General Communiqué

Greetings, one and all!

Once again, I have good news: The Subversive Theatre Collective ( of Buffalo, NY will host that city’s first-annual infringement Festival in 2005!

This means that next year, there will be an infringement Festival Touring Circuit, and, as always,all are welcome to join. We’re still looking for other cities to join the ones already confirmed (Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and now Buffalo) so please pass this message around to anyone you know who might be willing and able to start aninfringement Festival. Details on how to get started can be found here:

Those who wish to get an early start can always start their festival this year.

Once again, I'd like to thank all the wonderful people in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto who helped out with Car Stories and the infringement. Also, if anyone has photos of the Montreal or Toronto festivals this summer, or of Car Stories in Ottawa, please e-mail them to

On another note, Optative Theatrical Laboratories (one of the infringement hosts in Montreal) will be in New York City as part of Theaters Against War (THAW) to participate in theatrical protest for the RepublicanNational Convention on August 28th. Those interested in joining us should contact

And speaking of THAW, people representing that group were kicked out of the Toronto Fringe Beer Tent last weekend. We find this reprehensible and have started an online petition:

Things seem to be shaping up nicely for us and next year should be a blast! Once again, thanks and hope to see you all soon,
