Alternating Currents is part of Working Theater’s Five Boroughs/One City Initiative. The play was developed with 5 Boroughs artistic partners Adam Kraar, GT Upchurch and Tamilla Woodard, in partnership with IBEW Local 3, and through conversations with residents of Electchester, Pomonok Housing and the community in Flushing, Queens.
