Handbook for an American Revolutionary

Written and Performed by Matthew-Lee Erlbach

Directed by Tony Speciale

From coal power to white power, Handbook for an American Revolutionary introduces us to a diverse breadth of ordinary citizens in extraordinary circumstances whose battles are reshaping this nation. From a busker street drummer to a deaf Mennonite girl; from the mountaintop removal activist in West Virginia to the migrant field worker in California; from an energy lobbyist to a white nationalist; and from the banks of Wall Street to the banks of the Persian Gulf, the 12 characters we meet in the play are the face of America's turbulent present and a hand to our hopeful future—the 99%. Inspired by Matthew-Lee's travels around the country, Handbook is a provocative and darkly comic play about the many Davids versus Goliaths in 21st-century America.
