In Circle Jerk, it’s winter on Gaymen Island, a summer retreat for gay men rich and famous. This offseason, two white gay internet trolls hatch a plot to take back what is wrongfully theirs. Cancellations, meme schemes, and political and erotic flip flops abound as three actors playing nine roles perform this chaotic live-action descent into the high-energy, fast-changing, low-brow shit of the internet.

With Circle Jerk, co-writers and performers Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley, joined by Cat Rodríguez, draw inspiration from Charles Ludlam’s Mystery of Irma Vep and sci-fi genre flicks like Ex Machina to send plotlines on the crisis of technology in relationships with humans and the concept of “reality”. Circle Jerk is directed by Rory Pelsue and features dramaturgy by Ariel Sibert.

Circle Jerk’s creative team includes video and co-lighting designer David Bengali, co-lighting designer and video associate Ted Boyce-Smith, set and props designer Stephanie Osin Cohen, sound designer Kathy Ruvuna, costume designer Cole McCarty , wig and makeup. up designer Tommy Kurzman, stage manager Codey Leroy Butler, production manager Violet Asmara Tafari, technical director Jesse Mattes, assistant stage manager Carolina Arboleda, assistant set designer and props manager Anthony Freitas, video associate Stivo Arnoczy, video engineer Ted Charles Brown, production electrician The Sovereign Candle – Kent Sprague and graphic designer Kameron Neal.

Miranda Gohh and Emma Orme are co-producing this iteration of Circle Jerk. Salman Al-Rashid, Caroline Gart and Jeremy O. Harris are executive producers, with generous support from FourthWall Theatrical. Noah Eisenberg is co-producer and Steven Ebert is associate producer.

Circle Jerk was originally developed with the Makers Lab at Ars Nova. It was also developed, in part, with support from Mitu’s Artists-at-Home program.
