THE LAST CARGO CULT (New York Premiere)
Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
Directed by Jean-Michele Gregory
December 3 – 13
“Comic and searing, a form of literary standup blending autobiography, history, and philosophy.” – PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
“The master storyteller—one of the finest solo performers of his generation.” -NEW YORK TIMES
In THE LAST CARGO CULT, groundbreaking monologist Mike Daisey (If You See Something Say Something) returns to The Public with the story of his journey to a remote South Pacific island whose people worship America and its cargo. This narrative is woven against a searing examination of the international financial crisis that gripped the globe at the same moment. Confronting the financial system that dominates our world, Daisey wrestles with the largest questions of what the collapse means, and what it can tell us about our deepest values. Part adventure story and part memoir, he explores each culture to unearth a human truth between the seemingly primitive and achingly modern.
