Checking in on those 'MotherF**king Girl Scouts' at the Wild Project

Photos by Stacie Joy 

A new play, "MotherF**king Girl Scouts," written by East Village resident Emmy W. (below), makes its debut in the days ahead as part of the Fresh Fruit Festival at the Wild Project.
Here's more about the production: 
In "Motherf**king Girl Scouts," camp counselors Jazmyn and Jia take an impulsive and unhinged group of young Girl Scouts on a camping trip they will never forget. On their journey, the Girl Scouts begrudgingly learn how to navigate the great joys and intense traumas of being a teenager, complete with motivational creatures popping out of the forest, accidental molly consumption, and most crucially, each other. 
And its showtimes at the theater, 195 E. Third St. between Avenue A and Avenue B:
• Wednesday 5/11 at 8:45 p.m. 
• Friday 5/13 at 6 p.m. 
• Saturday 5/14 at 3 p.m. 

EVG contributor Stacie Joy stopped by the theater this afternoon for the play's tech rehearsal...

'The Drag Explosion' brings the golden age of NYC drag history to the Wild Project

Via the EVG inbox...

Linda Simpson, a shining star of NYC’s drag scene for almost 30 years, returns to The Wild Project with another presentation of her acclaimed narrated her-storical slideshow, The Drag Explosion, on Friday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m.

All of the photos in The Drag Explosion were shot by Linda from the late 1980s to the mid 1990s, and they reveal a golden age of NYC drag history. During this era, the drag scene remarkably transformed from an underground art form into a pop-culture phenomenon.

The photos capture wild nightlife, queer activism, and all sorts of colorful characters, including RuPaul, Lady Bunny and Lypsinka, as they joyfully pushed the boundaries of gender expression.

The Wild Project is at 195 E. Third St. between Avenue A and Avenue B. Tickets for the event are $10. Find more details here.
