Ham on Rye (10/23 -11/6)

Friday, October 23 2020
$10 ticket.
72 hour rental period following payment.
 

Ham on Rye, a coming-of-age comedy centered on the nervous excitement of youth and the strange horror of entering adulthood uses an expansive ensemble of over one hundred performers, including non-actors, musicians, 90’s Nickelodeon child stars, and more, to explore a suburban community’s relationship with a prom-like ritual and the decay of the human spirit. It begins with the crowd-pleasing spirit of a John Hughes movie and fades slowly into an off-kilter dystopia with the energy of Dazed and Confused. 

The Apohadion Theater and SPACE are pleased to co-present Ham on Rye as part of an ongoing series of virtual film screenings in 2020.

“Ham on Rye has the uncanny echo of a disturbing real-life dream. A hauntingly off-kilter revision of the end-of-high-school drama.” 
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“An Elegant Grand Chronicle of Chaos Foretold.”
– Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

“The Twilight Zone meets Dazed and Confused in this funny, unsettling film.”
– Max Weiss, Baltimore Magazine

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
