Performance: Summerland Lost - A Ghost Story

  • PhilaMOCA 531 North 12th Street Philadelphia, PA, 19123 United States (map)

The Wall Street Journal calls him “a national treasure.” His mother calls him “Sunshine". Now author Grady Hendrix brings his one-man show about psychic teenagers and shaved cats to PhilaMOCA with SUMMERLAND LOST: A GHOST STORY. Telling the all-shocking, all-true tale of drunk Victorian teenagers who spoke to the dead, this is the real life story of how biomechanical sex cults, the ghost of Ben Franklin, suffragettes, abolitionists, anarchists, and Arctic explorers all teamed up to answer the ultimate question: is there life after death?

Grady Hendrix is the author of the novels Horrorstör, about a haunted IKEA, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, which is basically Beaches meets The Exorcist, and the upcoming history of the horror paperback boom of the 70s and 80s, Paperbacks from Hell (Sept. 2017). One of the founders of the New York Asian Film Festival, he’s written about machine gun collectors, ninjas, the Confederate flag, and Jean-Claude Van Damme for Playboy, Variety, Slate, and the New York Post.
