A People's History

created and performed by Mike Daisey



Overview

About the show

After a successful run of The Trump Card last season, acclaimed monologist Mike Daisey is back to present his latest work, A People’s History. This new piece begins simply: Daisey finds a copy of the U.S. history textbook from his high school in rural Maine from over twenty five years ago. What follows is a kind of history lesson as only Daisey could teach, contrasting the history he grew up with and a very different book: Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. In this 18-part performance Daisey tells a history of America—from the first landing of Columbus to the election of Donald Trump—exposing and illuminating with his signature dark humor as he eviscerates the myths we have all helped make.
