On The Staten Island Ferry is an open theatre workshop presently in rehearsal at St. John’s in The Village, 83 Christopher Street, every Tuesday from 1-3pm.
It is a revue written by Carol Orito, Bronwyn Rucker, Jimmy Tomkins and others that addresses contemporary topics such as voting rights, immigration, book banning, advocacy vs complacency and democracy vs autocracy. This revue will move to various community venues, particularly senior centers in the oncoming months, seeking further participation and addressing the need for ongoing advocacy.
On The Staten Island Ferry is presented as a rehearsed reading. Following each reading there is an open discussion. All are invited. Volunteers are welcome for readings.
“We’re Still Here” is an amusing look into the lives of a few men who, after a solid number of years hanging out with each other at the same Greenwich Village bar, have managed to create their own family. They’ve laughed, cried, gossiped, and even mourned together . . . and are still around to remember all of it. Written and performed by James Tomkins, and directed by Bronwyn Rucker, “We’re Still Here” had its premier tryout performance on Thursday, November 11th at 7:00 PM at Don’t Tell Mama cabaret. 2022 dates to be announced!
