WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Barring the Unforeseen, Mike Daisey's terrifying new monologue about ghost stories and why we tell them, will play a special, limited engagement the week of Halloween. Mike Daisey has been called "the master storyteller...one of the finest solo performers of his generation" by the New York Times. In Barring the Unforeseen he returns to his roots in a monologue told from a vast and unknowable northern province called childhood. Woven together from Maine ghost stories, the history of spiritualism, H.P. Lovecraft's tortured life, and the unspeakable dread lurking under your bed, Daisey creates a monologue about why we tell ghost stories, and the precious, terrifying gifts they bring us. Unsettling and inquisitive, he embarks on a journey with a daring audience to come back with answers.
