New York, NY (June 7, 2022) — The Tony Award® nominated and Olivier Award® winning writers of the internationally acclaimed, Six, will host a special, late-night performance of Circle Jerk on June 11 at 10:30pm, in honor of Pride month.
Circle Jerk is hosting these wild, unhinged pride performances throughout their run and for the first time ever, this production will be presented in person and online simultaneously.
Pride performances include:
Saturday, June 11th at 10:30pm

In Circle Jerk, it’s winter on Gaymen Island, a summer retreat for the homosexual rich and fame-ish. This off-season, two White Gay internet trolls hatch a plot to take back what’s wrongfully theirs. Cancellations, meme schemes, and political and erotically flip flops abound as three actors playing nine parts play out this chaotic live-streamed descent into the high-energy, quick-change, low-brow shitpit of the internet.
Tickets on sale now. Please visit https://circlejerk.live/.
In-person Pride Performance tickets start at $19. Livestream tickets for all performances are available on a sliding scale from $5.99-$49.99.
Toby Marlow is the other half of the writing duo behind SiX. Writing/Performing credits include: Hot Gay Time Machine (Trafalgar Studios) co-written with Lucy Moss and Zak Ghazi-Torbati, in which he performed the role of Hot Gay Toby. The group has also collaborated frequently with Courtney Act (of “RuPaul’s Drag Race fame). Toby has enjoyed writing stand-up songs for cabarets, concerts and charity events. Oh, and he also once stepped in as Catherine Parr for two performances in London’s West End, but he’d be way too modest and shy to mention it in the Playbill obvs. @thetobymarlow

SiX has a number of productions open internatioinaly, including an open-ended run on Broadway and in London’s West End, a UK tour, and an Australian tour.
