Saturday, come see a play in NYC with BOTGNY. Showing of “ Orange Julius” at the Rattlesticks Playwright theatre located at 224 Waverly Place , NYC.

On Saturday February 11th, who would be interested in coming into NYC with Boots on the Ground NY to see a show called ‘Orange Julius’, a new play about a child of a Vietnam Vet and their complex relationship with their father. We plan to have a discussion afterwards the complexities of being a vet or the family member of a vet following the show. I should also note that our actor playing Julius is a Vet himself.

 Boots on the Ground NY will be purchasing a limited number of tickets that the producer has offered us at a discounted price. We will be offering tickets for free to Veterans, their guests and our volunteer team members. The matinee will start at 2pm.

 BOTGNY can also help with train fare for those that need.

 Don’t know if the play is good or bad, but though some would like to see it, and some the play might be moving for.

 We need to know asap who wants to go and how many tickets so we can purchase them this weekend.

 In Orange Julius, Nut grew up the youngest child of Julius, a Vietnam vet, in the 1980s and 90s working-class America. As Julius suffers the toxic effects of Agent Orange, Nut worries their time together may run out before they can embrace something essential about their relationship. “…a rich and thoughtful study of family, love, and the bonds brought about by war. Orange Julius is not just a promising play by a young writer. It’s an assured, mature, work that challenges and moves well beyond expectations.” —-Bill Eadie, The San Diego Story
