WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
How do we tackle poverty in America? In our community? Over the course of 90 minutes, audience members listen, explore, and ultimately decide how to spend $1,000 in cash from that evening's box office sales. An experiment in dialogue, collective decision-making, shared responsibility, and the potential for art to transform our world, How to End Poverty in 90 Minutes (With 119 People You May or May Not Know) is spectacularly eclectic in form, often delightful, and occasionally uncomfortable. The production engages audiences alongside community experts, blending adventurous theatricality with real-time, task-based connective encounters among strangers.
