Dixon Place Presents OUTRAGE, For One Night Event
A brand new one man show about the state of our trouble nation comes this spring to Dixon Place for a one night only event. Inspired by and adapted from real life internet commentary revolving around the 2016 U.S. Election, Outrage is a one man show challenging a severely polarized America to listen more closely. The trolling, cyber bullying, and name calling we engage in on a daily basis takes center stage in this brutally honest portrayal of our national turmoil. Originally presented in Dixon Place's Lounge space in March 2018, this workshop production continues its development for a one night event on the Dixon Place mainstage.
Performances: Saturday, March 16th, 2019 @ 10:00 PM
Tickets ($15 advance tickets, $18 tickets at the door): https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/10382567
