The Pulp Collective formed in 2015 to create The Numbers Game, an episodic series of six one-act plays, on stage at the Storefront Theatre in the fall of 2016. An ambitious project bringing together six playwrights in a TV-style writers’ room, The Numbers Game tells an epic story of 1930’s gangland warfare, pitting fiery Harlem Madam Stephanie “Queenie” St. Clair against the brutal gangster Dutch Schultz for control of the Harlem numbers racket.
The Pulp Collective is approaching theatre in a new way: episodic installments on a weekly basis. Because at The Pulp Collective, we believe that live performance is a uniquely engaging storytelling experience. We want to revolutionize how artists create and audiences consume theatre.
