Form Theatricals in association with Judson Arts presents the world premiere of Handbook for an American Revolutionary, written and performed by Matthew-Lee Erlbach, beginning July 19, prior to an official press opening July 22, at The Gym at Judson.
Inspired by Erlbach's travels around the United States, Handbook, according to producers Anthony Francavilla and Zachary Laks, "is a raw, incendiary, and darkly comic play giving voice to a panorama of ordinary citizens in extraordinary circumstances whose battles are reshaping 21st-century America. As he blazes through a powerful spectrum of diverse Americans, Erlbach gives voice to the voiceless from coal power to white power, K Street to Bourbon St, and the prophets and profits of today's America. The twelve dynamic characters in Erlbach's play are the face of America's turbulent present and a hand to its hopeful future—the 99%." Here's a look at the production:
