Drinking & Writing takes the hit show "To Cure A Hangover" on the road. Each week in March, the show will be performed at a different Chicago brewery going from Goose Island, to Revolution Brewing, then Half Acre, and ending at the home of the Drinking & Writing Theater--Haymarket Pub & Brewery.
After much experimentation on themselves, Neo-Futurists Sean Benjamin and Steve Mosqueda have cured the hangover. The cure will be unveiled during "To Cure A Hangover" which presents the experiments they performed on themselves (from sex to Pediatlye to cabbage...) along with the stories that go with the experiments and the hangover writing of drinkers and writers like Charles Bukowski, John Cheever, and Kingsley Amis. The cure cannot be revealed here but the authors assure you, "Drinking less is not the cure. That's the cure for not getting drunk."
Running time is 65 minutes.
Chicago Reader - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
DRINKING & WRITING VOLUME III: TO CURE A HANGOVER Sean Benjamin and Steve Mosqueda explore possible morning-after cures in this goofy, unflinching lecture-cum-performance about the unpleasant consequences of the bibulous life. Self-loathing prose from John Cheever and Charles Bukowski--two monumental drinker-writers at opposite ends of the socioeconomic spectrum--is intertwined with tales of the writer-performers' experiments in thwarting a hungover "poor sense of well-being" (quite unlike the "false sense of well-being" that gets an overimbiber in trouble). Cures involve cabbage, Pedialyte, sex, and various combinations of chorizo and eggs; audience-participation bits are rewarded with free drinks. Benjamin and Mosqueda neither glorify nor repudiate the hard-drinking life--after all, shit-faced happens. --Kerry Reid
