The building at 85 East 4th Street is the location of the Horse Trade Theater Group

The Horse Trade Theater Group was founded in 1998 in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It is located at 85 East 4th Street between Second Avenue and The Bowery The three theaters in the group are the Kraine Theater, the Red Room and UNDER St. Marks.[1] These three theaters are the artistic homes to the many Off-Off Broadway theatre artists involved with Horse Trade as resident artists and guest artists.[2]

Horse Trade's informal mission is to operate a self-sustaining theater group which cultivates new and exciting theater and provides the community with low-cost, high-quality venues run by knowledgeable and helpful people. It hosts "FRIGID New York", an annual uncensored theater festival whose official mission is "to create an accessible community of varied voices. To bring together independent theater artists, by supporting them in their work within a greater Theater community. To have artists support each other’s talent while creating lasting artistic partnerships. As well as to expose the Artists work and promote it to local audiences. Our biggest annual Festival gives 100% of the ticket sale proceeds back to the artist."[3]

In 2015, Horse Trade Theater Group/The Fire This Time Festival won the Obie Grant at the Obie Awards presented by the American Theater Wing.[4]
