Presented by

Creators: Briana Templeton and Gwynne Phillips




St. George the Martyr Anglican Church – Courtyard


August 6th, 2015 – August 16th, 2015


An Evening in July is an immersive, site-specific, dark comedy that transforms the garden and parish hall of St. George the Martyr Anglican Church (also known as The Music Gallery) into the strange and lavish home of eccentric sisters May and June  as they prepare to host the garden party of their dreams. Inspired by the cult documentary Grey Gardens and Helene de Rothschild’s 1972 Surrealist Ball, An Evening in July gives audience members a chance to attend their surreal fete as guests. (
