Dan Hoyle's "The Real Americans" at Throckmorton Theatre


Date: Saturday, January 7, 2017

Time: 8:00pm

Phone: 415-383-9600

Dan Hoyle returns to Throckmorton Theatre with "The Real Americans-An Update".  Escaping the liberal urban bubble, award-winning playwright and performer Dan Hoyle spent 100 days traveling through small town America. Living out of his van, he found himself sharing meals and conversations with union coal miners, rural drug dealers, anti-war Veterans, and closeted gay creation theory experts, among others. Hoyle sought to see the world through their eyes, and found himself at ground zero of our country's growing economic inequality and polarized politics. Two Obama terms and 350 performances in a dozen cities later, the show is back. Why? Because Donald Trump has made it all wildly relevant again.

Dan Hoyle is an actor and writer based in New York City. His brand of journalistic theater has been hailed as "riveting, funny, poignant" by the New York Times and "hilarious, moving, and very necessary" by Salon. His solo shows, including the most recent Each and Every Thing, and previously The Real Americans, Tings Dey Happen, Florida 2004: The Big Bummer, and Cirumnavigator-all created and premiered at The Marsh Theater in his native San Francisco-have had more then 800 performances around the country and overseas including Joe's Pub at The Public Theater, Culture Project, Berkeley Repertory Theater, Cleveland Playhouse, Portland Center Stage, Playmakers Rep, Painted Bride in Philadelphia, The Lensic in Santa Fe, The Park in Calcutta, Indiana, a U.S. State Department-sponsored five city tour of Nigeria and many universities incliding Columbia, Stanford, USC, and NYU. 

Doors open at 7:30pm.
