New York, NY – The Twentieth-Century Way, Tom Jacobson’s acclaimed two-person play about homosexual entrapment in Los Angeles at the turn of the 20th century, will cap this historic Gay Pride month with a one-night-only special performance and talkback. Tickets will be priced at $15 for patrons under the age of 30 for the Monday, July 6th performance. Tickets for this special evening celebrating Gay Pride must be purchased by visiting www.rattlestick.org and entering code “15under30”. Limit one ticket per patron with a valid ID. This performance will be followed by a talkback hosted by Playbill’s Blake Ross and NY1’s Frank DiLella, with a panel discussion to include cast members Will Bradley and Robert Mammana.
Directed by The Theatre @ Boston Court’s Michael Michetti, and starring Will Bradley and Robert Mammana, The Twentieth-Century Way began previews on May 28, 2015 at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (224 Waverly Place, NYC) and will run through July 19, 2015. The performance schedule is as follows: Monday, Wednesday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm.
Based on a little-known incident in LA history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors juggle various roles to entrap homosexuals for “social vagrancy” in the public restrooms of 1914 Long Beach. But are they actually entrapping each other? Who they are and what they need is a mystery that deepens with every twist and turn. The Twentieth-Century Way earned Mr. Jacobson a PEN Center USA Award for Drama, and was a sensation at the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival, winning Overall Excellence in Production of a Play.
This co-production continues the association between two companies – The Theatre @ Boston Court (Los Angeles) and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (New York).
Tickets for The Twentieth-Century Way range from $10 – $50 and can be purchased by visiting www.rattlestick.org.
