“The punchy-colored slides and humorous yet heartfelt prose McIlvain recites is as uncanny and nostalgic as some of our own family scrapbooks.” Philadelphia City Paper
“Ingenious travel down memory lane!” Stage Magazine
We had two special house shows in Philadelphia in December and look forward to more performances in 2015 in New York, Philly, and beyond!
From the 1950s through the 1980s, the slideshow was a staple of American life. SLIDESHOW drops audiences back into the time of Kodachrome colors, weaving a fictional family history around strangers’ real slides of long ago vacations. A bizarre, funny, and disturbing work that recreates a bygone ritual, and delves into the lost aspirations of American life. SLIDESHOW recently debuted at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival to critical acclaim and sold out performances.
