Spookfish Theatre Company was founded in New York City in February of 2010 by theatre artists, Ming Peiffer and Kat Yen. Recently named Horse Trade Theater Group's Resident Company for their 14th season of residencies, we will be presenting two new works in the upcoming season in co-production with Horse Trade.
Our critically acclaimed solo-show The ABC's Guide To Getting Famous was accepted to the 2013 New York International Fringe Festival!
Stay tuned for dates!
Beginning this Fall 2013 we will be starting a Quarterly Reading Series! Check back in August for submission information!

"Any fan of New York theater, large or small, and anyone who enjoys pondering knotty questions should see this show. Ms Peiffer argues, convincingly, for a more inclusive culture created by minorities working together, a vision which is much more American than the system she is struggling against." - Tamas Vilaghy, The Local East Village
"Aware..." - The New York Times
"After [her first full-length play] took off, Peiffer continued writing, used the income to co-found Spookfish Theatre Company, and has had continued success..." - Jessica Cauttero, BACKSTAGE
