Quotes & Highlights
“Mr. Hoyle is both a first-rate reporter and actor.” —The New York Times
“Hoyle has a gift for mime and vocal mimicry that recalls solo artists John Leguizamo, Sarah Jones or Lily Tomlin.” —_San Francisco Chronicle _
“Hoyle is a remarkable actor capable of transforming his voice and body in an instant.” —_Oakland Tribune _
After traveling the globe for his first play, Circumnavigator, and studying Nigerian oil politics for his third, Tings Dey Happen, this time Hoyle is back in the United States, turning his eye and ear on America’s culture wars. Fleeing the liberal bubble of San Francisco and his hipster friends, Hoyle spent 100 days traveling through small-town America in search of some tough country wisdom and a way to bridge America’s urban/rural divide. Instead, Hoyle found himself immersed in the populist anger of the people whom Sarah Palin famously described as ‘The Real Americans’ and awed at the disconnect between Obama Nation and Palin Country. Portrayed with humor, sympathy, confusion, angst, and song, this vivid performance challenges the audience to move beyond their bafflement and engage with the future of a politically polarized America.
