S  L  I  D  E  SHOW

created and performed by Josh McIlvain, just finished its run at the 2014 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.

From the 1960s through the 1980s, the slideshow was a staple of American life. SLIDESHOW drops audiences back in 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 brings the past into the present.

“The punchy-colored slides and humorous yet heartfelt prose McIlvain recites is as uncanny and nostalgic as some of our own family scrapbooks.” Read the City Paper review!
