Performances will begin on September 17 at the American Airline Theatre, where it will open officially on October 6.“Thom’s music works backwards and forwards and plays with time and repetition in the same way Pinter does,” said Hodge. “In true Thom Yorke‐style, the music is epic, heartbreaking, irresistible and complex.”Yorke added, “It’s been a pleasure working with Doug on my first stage production.

Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, dozens of members of the UE Key Club decorated pumpkins, made pillows, and put together what they called “bags of hope”. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — Some local students from Union-Endicott High School were hard at work handing out hope to breast cancer survivors. The club then gave the items out to the Lourdes Breast Care Center and women who have had surgery. Kendal Phinney, member of the UEHS key club told 12 News, “We’ve always been a pretty big club, and a lot of people have wanted to do a lot of things, especially when they can physically attend the events. But it’s been a lot harder with not all of us going to school on the same days. So we’ve been having virtual meetings. But we’ve had good participation, for the most part, just everyone coming together for the same cause.” The UE Key Club Supervisor says she is incredibly proud of what the students were able to do for others amid the pandemic.
