Daisey's Last Cargo Cult Will Play Atlanta

News   Daisey's Last Cargo Cult Will Play Atlanta Monologist Mike Daisey will bring The Last Cargo Cult, his take on the global financial crisis, to Atlanta's Alliance Theatre beginning March 19.

Daisey's wife and frequent collaborator Jean-Michele Gregory directs the Atlanta run that will officially open March 24 and run through April 11.

During the Atlanta run Daisey will also offer a one-night-only performance of How Theater Failed America April 5. The presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion.

Cargo Cult, according to press notes, is "the story of [Daisey's] journey to a remote South Pacific island whose people worship America and its cargo… the new comic monologue confronts the financial system that dominates our world and wrestles with the largest questions of what the collapse means and what it can tell us about our deepest values."

Mike Daisey's monologues include If You See Something, Say Something, Invincible Summer, Monopoly!, Great Men of Genius, The Ugly American, I Miss the Cold War, Wasting Your Breath and Stories From the Atlantic Night Cafe. His first film, "Layover," is being distributed by Lars von Trier's Zentropa, and a film of If You See Something… will be released shortly.
