THE SECRET WAR
12TH ANNUAL FIRST PERSON ARTS FESTIVAL
Enter to win a pair of tickets!
"Enthralling and supremely theatrical. Why be a journalist if you can spin stories like these?" —Chicago Sun Times
In this controversial new work, master storyteller Mike Daisey is telling the most important story we're not allowed to talk about: the story of secrets. From the personal to the political, Daisey delves into three individuals who were driven to reveal secrets: Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, and Daniel Ellsberg. These are polarizing figures—all have been called traitors and heroes, whistleblowers and villains, as many struggle to define them. By focusing on the human, Daisey provides a startling look at how we all keep secrets—and the price we pay for them.
Runs Friday, November 8 and Saturday November 9, 9pm, at Christ Church Neighborhood House.
