A People’s History

Now through 11/25/2018 | Seattle Repertory Theatre

Theatre Queen Anne/Seattle Center

Master storyteller, author, and actor Mike Daisey returns to the Rep with A People’s History, the autobiographical story of when Daisey comes across a battered copy of his high school U.S. history textbook and decides, in true Daisey fashion, to contrast it with something wildly different: Howard Zinn’s electrifying A People’s History of the United States. In this series of 18 stand-alone monologues, Daisey explores a history of the U.S. not typically taught in schools. From Columbus’ landing to today’s political landscape, Daisey confronts our history of exploitation and characterizes the stirring struggle of those who have fought against it to make our American ideals a reality.
