Alternating Currents

off-Broadway premiere and borough tour

April-May 2018

 

Tickets and more info coming soon.

When two newly married electricians move to Electchester everything seems perfect: spacious apartment, low rent, friendly neighbors, and an incredibly close-knit community. But as they settle in, they discover how much they may need to give up in order to really belong.

Queens Community Engagement

This upcoming year we will be in Electchester, Queens, talking to residents about what community means to them.  If you have a story to share, let us know!

 

Email your story to: info@theworkingtheater.org

or send us your contact info and we’ll get in touch with you.

 

Our mission is taking us to all of the five Boroughs of New York City, and for the past 3 years, we’ve been engaging with communities throughout NYC, talking about what’s important to them, and creating theater based on these themes.

 

Stay tuned for more events leading up to the production and tour of Alternating Currents.
