Seance-as-Theatre Experiment BONEYARDS Continues This Weekend

The ongoing seance-as-theatre experiment continues. After a highly successful run in the 2013 Philly Fringe and a post-Fringe extended run last fall, BONEYARDS is back from the dead to rock your underworld. Come on in from the heat and peacefully rest in a cool, dark, crypt. Same autobiographical, spooky show, same mouldering location, same real ghosts, but now featuring a visit from New York's quirkiest experimental performance artist Michael Wiener.

2 SHOWS ONLY: TONIGHT 7/26/14 at 9pm and Sunday 7/27/14 at 2pm. Tickets $10, seating is limited to 20.

The hilarious, eloquent and haunting follow-up to Stanley's 2011 Fringe hit Beautiful Zion: A Book of the Dead, this true to life romp resurrects the cadaverous--from Philly's Laurel Hill Cemetery to a British colonial graveyard in India to ancient Greek tomb worshippers. Paranormal activity guaranteed.

A funeral for the living. A coming-of-age embalming. A suicidal decapitation by coal train. A cross-dressing hillbilly named Doodlebug. This metatheatrical, taphophilic, true-to-life monologue resurrects and converses with the cadaverous--from Philly's Laurel Hill Cemetery to a British colonial era graveyard in India to ancient Greek tomb worshippers. Is there a meaning to the universe? Is the spirit world speaking to you right now through this press release? If so it should be testable, no? Thrill as Stanley points to a tombstone and researches the forgotten dead beneath it, forming connections with the deceased who rise to the surface halfway around the world in a Kolkata graveyard, and in his own Appalachian family. Shriek and shimmy as Stanley worships the dead in song. Be amazed as a live seance yields messages for audience members. Psychism? Telepathy? Subconscious ideomotor impulses? Watch, decide, leave smiling, healed and redeemed. Paranormal activity guaranteed.
