Compassion!) presents a kaleidoscope of gay characters set within some of the events the bent the arc of gay history in America. Pride Films and Plays' talented cast portrays more than three dozen characters whose histories are linked among the play's time-skipping scenes that are set in 1969 during Stonewall, in St. Vincent's at the height of the AIDS epidemic, on a beach in the Hamptons in the 1920s and again at a modern-day gay wedding, relating interconnecting stories of generations of gay men in America.

Quotes & Highlights
“The Electric Baby is illuminating. It made me care about these strangers’ lives. It made me misty for their losses and their gains. It inspired me to believe in the magic of a moonbeam.” —_"Chicago Theatre Beat":http://chicagotheaterbeat.com/2013/05/22/review-the-electric-baby-rivendell-theatre/ (3.5 stars)
“Though riddled with tragedy and loss, Stefanie Zadravec’s play is an often humorous, beautifully told tale of redemption, forgiveness and hope.” —Chicago Stage Standard stars)
“Zadravec deploys her endearing quirks with a good amount of grace and conviction … H.B. Ward and Meighan Gerachis, in particular, are painfully (I mean, painfully) good as the average couple.” —Chicago Reader
