The multi-talented writer and performer Matthew-Lee Erlbach (Roger, the Chicken, Another Earth) has created Handbook for an American Revolutionary, a raw and darkly comic one-man show. Inspired by Erlbach’s travels around the country, Handbook gives voice to a gallery of characters from “the 99%”. The incendiary testimony of these 12 individuals touches on topics ranging from coal power to white power, religious prophets to annual profits, K Street to Bourbon Street and beyond. Erlbach has compacted the turbulent panorama of the contemporary U.S.A. into a single, potent production, one sure to affect audiences long after the curtain falls. Tony Speciale (2011 Drama Desk Nominee for Outstanding Director, Unnatural Acts) directs this powerful portrait of America at the start of the 21st century.
