Photo Flash: First Look at STILL AT RISK
Theater for the New City, in association with MBL Productions, presents the New York premiere of the new play, Still at Risk by Tim Pinckney. Performances began March 7, 2019 for a limited engagement through Sunday, March 31, 2019 in the Community Space Theater at Theater for the New City (155 First Avenue, between 9th & 10thStreets). Opening Night was March 10, 2019.
Directed by Carl Andress (The Divine Sister; Die, Mommie, Die!), the five-member cast features Robert Gomes (Dada Woof Papa Hot, The Tempermentals) as Kevin, Christopher J. Hanke (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Buyer & Cellar) as Christopher, Amy Hohn(November, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) as Susan, Ryan Spahn (Daniel's Husband, Summer and Smoke) as Byron, and Jonathan Walker (The Assembled Parties, The Divine Sister) as Marcus.
Kevin, a surviving activist from the front lines of the AIDS crisis, finds himself struggling to find his place and purpose in contemporary gay culture. When a gay fundraising event threatens to erase the history he was part of creating, Kevin's anger and passion are renewed and he is confronted with the challenge of how to motivate change in this new climate of visibility. Along the way, Kevin's raw and slightly unhinged methods provoke everyone who can help him, damage long friendships and eventually expose some dark secrets. Hilarious, sharp, and deeply moving, Still at Risk is a powerful look at the personal and political hazards of rewriting the past and one man's attempt to move forward.
Still at Risk plays the following performance schedule: Wednesday at 7:00 p.m., Thursday - Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday & Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Special added performance on Tuesday, March 26 at 7:00 p.m.
