Actor/writer Frank Boyd wrote and performed The Holler Sessions, about one man’s burning obsession with American jazz, at Ancram Opera House in 2017. His new piece is Live from Lodge #274: Auction Preview. Inspired by findings from garage sales, estate auctions, thrift stores and eBay, Boyd uses personal artifacts from everyday American life in a search for perspective on the loss, reckoning and strangeness of the current moment. Conceptualized as an Elks Club charity auction, "Live from Lodge 274" draws on the work of Buster Keaton, 90s hip hop, and the complicated history of "benevolent" American institutions.
