During the 1960's Tony Barsha, a beat generation poet and playwright from New York City's Theater Genesis scene, shot a feature length film. Theatre Genesis was an off-off-Broadway theater founded in 1964 by Ralph Cook. Located in the historic St. Mark's Church in the Bowery, it produced the work of new American playwrights, including Lanford Wilson, Murray Mednick, Leonard Melfi, Walter Hadler, Sam Shepard and notably Tony Barsha. It is regarded as one of four theaters responsible for the explosion of New York's off-off-Broadway theater movement, along with Joe Cino's Caffe Cino, Judson Poets Theatre and La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club. The legendary photographer Ralph Gibson, whose photographs have been exhibited in museums all over the world, helmed the camera. The cast featured several of the actors who were part of the off-off Broadway La Mama theater scene during the 1960's. More than 25,000 feet of film was shot and titled AVOCADO, but the film was never finished… UNTIL NOW. After more than 40 years, the master reels have been found. A historically significant project and true labor of love.
