A Broadway hit in 1936 DEAD END was later made into a film starring Humphrey Bogart which included the first appearance of The Bowery Boys who went on to become the iconic "kid gang" of American movies. DEAD END takes place in a New York where tenement houses and luxury apartments stand side by side and extreme wealth and abject poverty intersect every day. Gangsters and bankers, prostitutes and lost children, failure and dreams of the future all live on this street. Axis Company illuminates these stark contrasts with an understanding of their mythology as well as their contemporary mirror in the city of today.

Playwrights Welcome is a new program developed for Dramatists Guild of America Members by Samuel French along with Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, Playscripts and Rodgers and Hammerstein. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theatre for playwrights, composers and lyricists. We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry's writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theatre. We're also aware that attending theatre is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.

Axis Company is proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome, which offers available tickets to professional playwrights on the day of a performance, free of charge. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at our theater, please contact us at or by calling (212) 807-9300 (leaving a message in the general mailbox). Note that writers must present their Dramatists Guild membership card when requesting a ticket.
