Andy Boyd has a new play!
TIA collaborator (Occupy Prescott) and playwright Andy Boyd has a new play! Come see Room, Room, Room, in the many Mansions of eternal glory for Thee and for everyone at The Brick in Williamsburg, October 12th-October 28th! This piece, which is with syd island and Philip Santos Schaffer, explores the life and legacy of The Publick Universal Friend, a genderless mystic from the 18th century. The Publick Universal Friend preached a non-predestinarian, anti-slavery, gender-egalitarian version of Christianity, and believed the world was about to end. Relatable! The show also includes the co-creators' own 21st century thoughts on some of the themes of PUF's life, like God, sex, gender, utopia, and the end of the world. There will be songs! There will be dancing! There will be an opportunity to radically rethink your relationship to gender!
Tickets start at $22, and the October 19th performance will be a sensory-relaxed show with even lighting, no projections, and quieter music."
