The Last Cargo Cult: A New Monologue by Mike Daisey. Presented by Richard Hugo House.
Nationally acclaimed monologuist and erstwhile Seattleite Mike Daisey returns to Seattle to workshop a new monologue, The Last Cargo Cult, where he tells the true-life story of his time on a remote South Pacific island whose inhabitants worship America at the base of a constantly erupting volcano. Their religion is explored alongside our own to form a sharp and searing examination of the international financial crisis. Daisey wrestles with the largest questions of what the collapse means, and what it says about our deepest values. Part adventure story and part memoir, he uses each culture to illuminate the other to find, between the seemingly primitive and the achingly modern, a human answer.

The six performances of The Last Cargo Cult, created and performed by Daisey and directed by Jean-Michele Gregory, will be the only chance Seattle audiences will have to see Daisey's new monologue before it tours nationally and runs Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in New York City later this year.


Arrive at the theater at 7:00 to get into the sold out shows--seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
