Charles Bunn: Shinnecock Tribe Woodcarver
Thursday, April 1, 11 a.m.
Charles Bunn was born and lived his entire life on the Shinnecock reservation, working as a hunting guide and decoy maker for the rich and famous. In 1966, hunting decoys made by Bunns were wrongly attributed another person, which, in 2002, prompted Jamie Reason and Joseph Jannsen to begin their research on “the greatest shorebird carver who ever lived.” The pair will discuss their findings in this Zoom presentation.
Runaway Princess: A Hopeful Tale of Heroin, Hooking and Happiness
Thursday, April 1, 7:30 p.m.
Totally True Things presents a true story, laced with wicked humor and much pathos, following Mary Goggin’s Irish Catholic upbringing, drug addiction, prostitution and the multitude of characters she encountered along the way to ultimately finding joy. Tickets to the virtual show are $12.
Inda Eaton: Shelter in Place On-Demand
Now through April 30.
One year ago, Bay Street Theater hosted a full house for the last live music performance before the pandemic shut every venue down. This last show, presciently titled Shelter in Place, was the culmination of creative energy generated over several years in the making of the independently produced Americana Roots Rock album by Inda Eaton called Shelter in Place. Tickets start at $10.
Available on-demand through Sag Harbor Cinema’s virtual cinema, Wojnarowicz: F**k You F*ggot F**ker is a fiery and urgent documentary portrait of downtown New York City artist, writer, photographer and activist David Wojnarowicz. As New York City became the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, Wojnarowicz weaponized his work and waged war against the establishment’s indifference to the plague until his death from it in 1992 at the age of 37. The film is followed by a Q&A with director Chris McKim, producer Fenton Bailey and interviewees Gracie Mansion and Carlo McCormick, moderated by Jerry Portwood of Rolling Stone. Tickets are $12.
