Have you heard the great news? Brian Copeland and Charlie Varon are turning up for Indivisible East Bay in a big way. They, like us all, have been quietly going insane while our country descends into chaos. Like true artists, they’ve channeled their frustration into a comedy, “The Great American Sh*t Show,” a series of monologues about their experience during the T#$%P era.
Smart, funny, provocative and at times, unexpectedly deeply moving, this is theater as a welcome dash of hope in dark times and a much needed call to arms. Created by three of the most accomplished solo theater artists in the Bay Area. GASS is four beautifully crafted and oh-so-timely monologues. This may be the perfect piece of theater for our times. By Robert Hurwitt – Former San Francisco Chronicle Theater Critic
The best part of the news? IEB will receive $20 for every ticket purchased in advance for the Saturday August 17, 7 PM show at the Castro Valley Center for the Arts if you use the code “Indivisible.” Buy your tickets and choose the best seats here. You can read a description of the show here and listen to this recent KPFA interview with Brian and Charlie where they talk about how the monologues developed.
That’s $20 from each ticket for pens, postcards, booth fees, the newsletter, website and everything else that goes towards keeping the progressive heart of IEB alive. We try to keep costs down (thank you for free meeting space, Sports Basement!), so we’re very grateful to Brian and Charlie for thinking of us.
Wear your Indivisible East Bay or other resistance t-shirt and join us next month for this night of therapy! And if you can’t join us but want to give a little something, you can keep the resistance going right here.
