Latest Mike Daisey monologue, tested in Portland, plays in D.C. | Oregon Performing Arts -

The monologuist Mike Daisey has been a favorite of Portland audiences over the past couple of years. In the Portland Institute for Contemporary Arts TBA:08 festival, Daisey presented two shows, "If You See Something, Say Something" (about the Department of Homeland Security, more or less) and "Monopoly!" (about capitalism, consumerism and the origins of the popular board game). His last visit here was this past August, when he performed a work-in-progress called "The Last Cargo Cult."
