The Ugly American
From the mad mind of the creator of 21 Dog Years comes a coming-of-age story about the strange and unpredictable experiences of a sheltered young American studying acting in London in 1993. Dazzlingly funny, Mike Daisey becomes a lightning rod for all manner of strange occurrences. He regales with stories of his naive 19-year-old sell - stumbling on his journey into theatre through failed acting classes, a postmodern neo-feminist play, and serving tea to Tom Stoppard, all-the-while artfully weaving together the lessons of artifice, class, gender and power that his new world so fiercely taught him.
"A commentator with real heart, Mike Daisey is a funny young everyman with a cherubic face and the persona of an innocent.”
