Novenas for a Lost Hospital is a communal experience to remember, honor, re-imagine and celebrate St Vincent’s Hospital. Inspired by the caretakers and patients of St. Vincent's Hospital, and guided by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, this unique event takes a 60-person audience on a journey from an enclosed garden to Rattlestick’s intimate West Village theater to the NYC AIDS Memorial Park.
Put on your sneakers (or most comfortable pair of shoes) and leave your heavy bags at home because Novenas for a Lost Hospital is a mobile experience. Your experience will start either at 6:30 or at 7:00 based on your chosen entrance time. We will start at ST. JOHN'S IN THE VILLAGE (below our theater at 218 West 11th Street), then move up the stairs to our theater, then move back downstairs a few blocks away to visit the NYC AIDS Memorial. Due to the traveling nature of this production, we encourage you to let us know if you anticipate having any difficulty traveling with us.
