Double Bill: The Devil & The Sugar

Tuesday November 2nd - Tuesday November 9th

Location : The Kraine Theater, New York, NY

The Devil by Jackson Sturkey

A work in progress, for Jackson had never believed that the Devil lived in the house at the bottom of the hill. When at the end of the summer of 2018 he was asked if he remembered that teacher from his is private Christian high school, he did not. This story unpacks the machinations of the institution and how they spent years hiding the Devil they know.

He normally can be found at many haunts of the east village and is also a Perennial player of Frigid NYC, Plan B Variety show, Liquid Family Dinner Cabaret, Ten foot rat Cabaret, NYC talent show and many more. His obsession with old Hollywood can be seen in his insta feed @outlatetonight. His most recent home has been Pangea. Part Tiny Tim, part dapper throwback, part emotional fire iron.
