WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Conversations with an Average Joe is a timely, engaging town hall-type gathering that examines the political turmoil surrounding the current election. The play examines injustice at the hands of big government and a broken political system. It's about normal lives of average people that include true experiences, but relate to the challenges, issues, uncertainties and suspicions that dominate interactions about government, politics, and our individual future. It centers on corrupt politicians, income inequality, race relations, the environment, the security of the country, and corporate and governmental dominance over our lives. It deals with the subjects we hear in the news from how us average folks without a voice had evolved to where we did, and are now being silenced again; being ripped of by corporations as we also have our taxes fund their profits; by having government separate us on so many issues we can't get together to fight back against them on the ones we agree.
