PSC members can see Alternating Currents, a play by Adam Kraar, directed by Kareem Fahmy, May 6 at 3 PM for a discounted rate of $22 per ticket. The play tells the story of two newly married electricians who move to Electchester. At first, 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. Alternating Currents is both a love story about a couple trying to find home and community as well as an exploration of the dreams, hopes and realities of the labor movement today vs. when Electchester was founded by Harry Van Arsdale, Jr. in the late 1940s.
The union’s Retiree Chapter is sponsoring this Working Theater performance, which will be held at Urban Stages Theater, 259 West 30 St. (between 7 and 8th Ave). To reserve your seat(s), mail a check for $22 per ticket made out to Working Theater to the PSC c/o Marcia Newfield or Steve Leberstein, 61 Broadway, 15th floor, NY, NY 10006.
