This month will see more action on the Kerouac front as Jack’s Last Call: Say Goodbye to Kerouac, the original play about Jack Kerouac’s last night on Long Island, will be performed at Gunther’s Tap Room in Northport.
This performance of the play, written by Massapequa resident Patrick Fenton, promises to be a special one. In fact, the play itself is set in Gunther’s, a place where Kerouac once drank and played pool during his time on Long Island in the early 1960s. It will be staged on Saturday, Oct. 24, almost 40 years to the date of Kerouac’s death, which took place on Oct. 21, 1969.
