PLAY: ELECTRICITY (Gallery)

chillicothe-high-school-73.jpg

Sex, drugs and booze make up the life of Brad Burke, while ex-seminary student Gary Henderson is so closeted that he hides his sexuality behind an invented wife. This unlikely pair hook up in a motel room after their 10-year high school reunion and it's a monumental clash of worlds that sparks an "electricity" between them that lures them back to that same motel room after each reunion for the next 3 decades.

ELECTRICITY is a very funny, sexy and surprisingly emotional journey through the immense changes that happened to the LGBTQ community between 1983 and 2013. It navigates a world where gay life was hidden in bars and sex clubs to one where equality might just be a reality--if Gary and Brad can only believe that they deserve it.

PRE-PRIDE PARADE FESTIVAL EUCHARIST

BOOKING

Booking, both for free and for charging events, is chiefly via our website. A link within the event description will take you to online ticketing. In some cases online ticketing will not become available until a month or so before the event. Those who cannot access the internet are encouraged to ask friends or family for assistance and to book in that way. Tickets can, however, be purchased in cash on the door (except when an event has sold out).

SENIORS

St John’s is aware that many residents of Greenwich Village, particularly those on fixed incomes, find access to the arts a challenge. That is why St John’s events are typically economically priced or simply free. We offer, however, further access in two ways.

⦁ Unless otherwise stated each event has an allocation of free seniors’ places which can be booked in advance. Bookings open, by email or phone, one week prior to the event and close at noon on the day before the event.

⦁ In our ‘Senior Standby’ scheme seats unsold at the time of the event can be given to seniors at the door free on a first-come first-served basis. This would typically be a few minutes before the event begins. There is no guarantee of admission.
