The Saint Spring and Summer Program of Events Booklet/Broadside.

New York: The Saint, Publisher. Unbound. Very Good. Item #019719

no date, perhaps 1985 (or 1986). Single sheet folded into 10 by 7 inches, unfolding into four panels. Designed to look like a composition notebook by John Vaughan, with illustrations by Michael Kirwin. A piece that unfolds into a poster like piece, listing a variety of events to be held at The Saint nightclub in May and the Summer of perhaps 1985. Of note is the Saint's 1st Theatre Party featuring a performance of William Hoffman's play "As Is," a work that depicted the toll of the AIDS epidemic on the gay community. The Saint, a gay nightclub, opened in 1980 in the old Fillmore East building. Founded by Bruce Mailman, the club operated for most of existence as a members' only venue, and earned a reputation for the parties held there. The club closed in 1988. VERY GOOD condition. Minor soiling, rubbing and edgewear. Small crease near the lower left corner.
