Where: Seattle repertory theater
Info: https://www.seattlerep.org/Plays/1819/PH/Synopsis

Master storyteller, author, and actor Mike Daisey returns to the Rep with A People’s History, the autobiographical story of when Daisey comes across a battered copy of his high school U.S. history textbook and decides, in true Daisey fashion, to contrast it with something wildly different: Howard Zinn’s electrifying A People’s History of the United States. In this series of 18 stand-alone monologues, Daisey explores a history of the U.S. not typically taught in schools. From Columbus’ landing to today’s political landscape, Daisey confronts our history of exploitation and characterizes the stirring struggle of those who have fought against it to make our American ideals a reality.



講故事大師、作者和演員Mike Daisey有一次為我們帶來了《人民的歷史》,當Daisey遇到一個破舊的美國高中歷史教科書,然後決定,用自己的方式,將它與完全不同的東西做對比:霍華德辛的美國人民的歷史。在這個由18個獨立獨白組成的系列中,Daisey探索了美國的歷史,這是學校裡沒有教過的。從哥倫布登陸到今天的政治版圖,Daisey道述了我們剝削的歷史,並描繪了那些為了實現我們的美國理想而為之鬥爭的 人們。
