Dan Hoyle’s The Real Americans
(Originally Called Right?)

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

A Marsh Rising Workshop

“A gift for mime and vocal mimicry that recalls solo artists John Leguizamo, Sarah Jones or Lily Tomlin.” SF Chronicle

The Marsh is pleased to announce a third Marsh Rising workshop performance of Dan Hoyle’s new solo show, which he has renamed “The Real Americans” (it was originally called Right?). Determined to understand life beyond the bubbles of our liberal cities, Hoyle traveled across the country through Small-Town America for 100 days. Living out of his van, sleeping in Wal-Mart parking lots and meeting with folks on the other side of the political and cultural divide, Hoyle turned his eye and ear on how the other half of the country lives. Sharing meals and conversation with cowboys, coal miners, soldiers, farmers, rural drug dealers, itinerant preachers, gun salesmen, small-town refugees, closeted gay church leaders, creation theory experts, liberal hicks and other everyday characters of Small-Town America, Hoyle sought to find out what binds us as fellow Americans and what makes us think so differently? Hoyle plays all these characters and more.

The show plays on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 7.30 pm on The Marsh Main Stage, 1062 Valencia Street. For tickets, the public may call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006 or visit

Hoyle won the prestigious 2008 Will Glickman ‘Best New Play’ Award for “Tings Dey Happen,” which enjoyed extended runs both Off-Broadway, where it was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show, and at The Marsh. A native San Franciscan, he is the creator of two other hit shows, both performed in his unique form of journalistic theater: “Circumnavigator” and “Florida 2004: The Big Bummer.”
