Written and performed by Dan Hoyle
Developed with and directed by Charlie Varon
As part of Crises of Democracy event, happening April 11, 2019 at the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities, second floor common room.
Based on conversations and interviews from the South Bronx housing projects, Refugee Safe Houses on the Northern Border with Canada, and travels along the Southwestern Border and into Mexico, Dan Hoyle's newest piece of "journalistic theater" is his freshest and most urgent. The show, currently running sold-out performances in San Franciscio, is comprised of ten monologues of people who live on or across borders both literal and metaphorical, an intimate, raw, poignant, funny look at the borders we all negotiate in our everyday lives.
Dan Hoyle is an actor and playwright recently returned to the Bay Area after four years living in New York City. His brand of journalistic theater has been hailed as “riveting, funny and poignant” (New York Times) and “hilarious, moving and very necessary” (Salon). His solo shows EACH AND EVERY THING, THE REAL AMERICANS, TINGS DEY HAPPEN, FLORIDA 2004: THE BIG BUMMER, and CIRCUMNAVIGATOR, have toured the country and overseas including Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater (NYC), Culture Project (NYC), Berkeley Repertory Theater, Baltimore Center Stage, Cleveland Playhouse, Mosaic Theater Company (D.C.), Portland Center Stage, Playmakers Rep (North Carolina), Painted Bride (Philadelphia), The Park in Calcutta, India, the Samuel Beckett Theater in Dublin, Ireland, and a U.S. State Department-sponsored five city tour of Nigeria. He has been an artist-in-residence at Trinity College, Dublin and Columbia University’s Heyman Center for Humanities.
