Congratulations to The Debate Society!

November 09, 2010 By: Category: Friends, Videos

We’re pleased to announce that our friends The Debate Society were just named “The Best Argument for Devised Theater” in The Village Voice‘s Best of 2010 issue! This means two things: 1) the entire city of New York agrees that the Debate Society is the coolest theater group they’ve ever seen and 2) by extension, Awkward Press is the best thing in America. So thank you to the editors of The Village Voice! We’re truly honored.

If you’d like to see The Debate Society’s work, you must hop on a plane and go to New York City. Theater is a type of entertainment that must be experienced in a live setting. That is how it works. However, if you’d like to see what kind of stuff this rascally group of rascals gets up to and cannot afford the plane ticket, you can check out the wonderful short film “grand marshal,” directed by Debate Society founder Oliver Butler and starring other Debate Society founder Paul Thureen.┬áDid I mention that the film is based on the short story by Awkward cofounder Clay McLeod Chapman and is available in the iBooks version of Awkward Two and on a special edition DVD, only from It is! Watch it for free below! And then buy a copy for your home collection right here!
