Upstream Theater Performances Coming to Old North Gallery Sun., April 15 & Sun., April 22

The award-winning Upstream Theater will bring two performances of its current production of “Conversations with an Executioner” to Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s Gallery at 2700 N. 14th Street. The performances are scheduled for 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 15 and Sunday, April 22.

Upstream Theater was recognized by the Riverfront Times as “Best Theater Company in St. Louis” in their 2010 “Best of St. Louis” issue with the following description: “if you’re open to having your mind stretched and your complacency challenged, if you welcome storytelling that is a little less conventional, then Upstream Theater should have a valued place in your theatergoing life.”

Among the actors performing in “Conversations with an Executioner” will be Old North resident John Bratkowski.

Because of the gritty nature of the play which commemorates the 69th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and addresses the aftermath of Nazi war crimes, the play is not recommended for children under the age of 13.  Admission will be free for audience members between the ages of 13 and 17 and will be $5 for audience members 18 and older.  This price represents a significant discount on the ticket prices for performances of the play at another theater in Grand Center.  The producers wanted to bring the play to Old North because of the neighborhood’s history as a home for many Polish immigrants and several generations of their descendants.

Due to limited seating at the Old North Gallery, reservations are recommended, and can be made by sending an email to

Arts programming at the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s Gallery is made possible in part by funding from the Regional Arts Commission.
