ELECTRICITY has played in cities across the country, however this exclusive engagement at INNdulge is the ONLY venue where it's performed in an actual hotel room. Each show only has 20 audience members, and is being presented in what's called Immersive Theater, which puts the audience in the same space as the performers. Walls are gone between the audience, the actors, and the action.
The experience begins at 7:30 p.m. in the hotel lobby, with the "Chillicothe Class of 1973 10 Year High School Reunion." Audience members mingle as fellow classmates, before heading to the hotel room where they become flies on the wall, as the story unfolds around them.
ELECTRICITY explores the journey of two gay men, Gary and Brad, who hook up in a motel room after their tenth high school reunion in small-town Ohio. Gary is so closeted that he hides behind an invented wife, and Brad is so reckless that he kills his pain with sex, drugs and alcohol because he can't see far enough into the future to believe he has one. Despite their differences, they have a connection which draws them back to that same motel room, and to each other, for every successive reunion from 1983 to 2013.
Playwright and veteran actor Terry Ray, who plays Gary, said he wrote this play "to chronicle the journey that so many gay men who came of age in the 1970s and 1980s can readily relate to, the journey from a place where silence sometimes equaled death, to one where equality might just be a reality."
Off Broadway and award-winning indie-film actor Mel England returns to the stage to play the party-addicted Brad. "It's always great to come home to the stage and this play is one of the most exciting I've ever worked on," England said, adding "It's so incredibly personal, and it's an honor to be working with Terry Ray so intimately with the audience right there -- it really is electric!"For tickets and more information www.ElectricityThePlay.com
