Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller – one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet – with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes its raw heart. The New York Times calls him “the master storyteller” and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris.
For his Richmond appearance, Daisey will spend two days in residency at the University of Richmond – working with students, wandering campus, and simply observing. Just before curtain, Daisey will make a few notes reflecting on his time at the University. When the lights come up, he will tell his tale for the first and only time. Expect to laugh, gasp, think, and perhaps even be offended by Daisey’s frank, yet magical, storytelling.
May not be suitable for all audiences.
