29-Night Epic Monologue on the Horizon for Daisey

From the Public Theatre website...

World Premiere 
Created and Performed by Mike Daisey 
Directed by Jean-Michele Gregory 
September 5 - October 3, 2013

Provocative monologist Mike Daisey, hailed as “the master storyteller” by The New York Times, returns to The Public with a breathtakingly epic theatrical event: a story told over the course of a lunar month, a new monologue every night, in 29 unique performances. Each evening works alone as a single episode, but together they tell a vast story that spans the globe and stretches across the 20th century to the present day and beyond, weaving together the secret history of the space race, notorious art forgeries, the angry ghosts of class and communism, and the still-beating heart of the military industrial complex. With hilarity and biting satire he will strive like Sheherazade to tell a story night after night, using our American empire as a backdrop to illuminate our moment here at the dawn of the corporate age. Audiences can be part of this epic experience as well as tune in online to experience the largest story ever attempted in the American theater.
