The Park Players present Electric City Suite
March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Electric City Suite is a cycle of six one-act plays telling the story of a quirky Scranton, Pennsylvania, snack delivery man and his family from 1921 to the present.
Episode 1: The Amazing Goldin and the Regeneration of the Lemurians: It’s 1921, backstage at Scranton’s famous Poli Theater. Danny McBride, the 12-year-old son of a coal miner, meets Horace Goldin, a mysterious magician, and makes an unusual but heartfelt request.
Episode 2: Orbiting Scranton: It’s February 20, 1962, and astronaut John Glenn is about to become the first American to orbit the earth. Dan McBride is now a grandfather, and a lifetime of working in the mines has ruined his health but not his spirit. Today, he’s watching the news coverage with his grandson, “Bolts,” a chubby, lonely 12-year-old home suffering from “bully flu.” As Colonel Glenn prepares for his adventure, Dan gives Bolts something which will help prepare him for his own life’s “great adventure.”
Episode 3: Mixed Nuts and Bolts: Halloween, 1991, at Jimmy’s, a neighborhood bar in Scranton where the regulars gather for beer and darts. Don Polosky’s wife has just left him and their young daughter. Hurt and angry, Don has retreated to Jimmy’s to figure out what’s happened to his life. His brooding is shattered by the arrival of a loud, jovial stranger—snack delivery man Bolts Dennehy.
