Highly entertaining and very educational. I went for my interests in the politics of Nigeria, the Niger Delta, and Oil politics. Hoyle's performance gives a look into the lives of many players from the militants, warlords, prostitutes, to the oil workers and ambassadors. I am not much of a theatre person, but I was very entertained with his performance. I also felt that he expanded my understanding of what's happening in the creeks of the delta.

Wonderfully performed, this show is a scorching indictment of oil politics in Nigeria and the repercussions for the Nigerian people. Dan Hoyle nails multiple characters, changing his accent, posture, body language and even the shape of his face...continued

Dan Hoyle’s Tings Dey Happen, is a riveting award-winning adventure story, a geopolitical tour-de-force about the year Hoyle studied oil politics in Nigeria, the “new Middle East” of oil security. Traveling alone through the swamps of the Niger Delta, he befriended militants, warlords, prostitutes and diplomats. Dan plays them all in this award-winning solo performance developed at The Marsh and directed by solo performance master Charlie Varon. Just back from a whirlwind tour of Nigeria, sponsored by the U.S. State Department, Dan will have post performance talkbacks on Thursday, Fridays and Sundays with special guests.
