The Marsh San Francisco Extends Dan Hoyle’s The Real Americans Through November 6, 2010.
“Impressive, hilarious, moving and provocative”—Rob Hurwitt, SF Chronicle. “Mr. Hoyle is both a first-rate reporter and actor”—NY Times. The Marsh is proud to announce the fifth extension of Dan Hoyle’s critically acclaimed and overwhelmingly popular new show, "The Real Americans."
“The Real Americans” connects two worlds that usually prefer to stay apart: the liberal, achingly hip, moral-relativism of gentrified city life and the conservative, absolutist, and often hostile populism that Hoyle found overflowing in small-town America. Living out of his van and sleeping in people’s yards and Walmart parking lots, Hoyle shared meals and conversation with cowboys, coal miners, soldiers, farmers, rural drug dealers, itinerant preachers, gun salesmen, closeted gay fundamentalists and creation theory experts. Frequently grateful for their hospitality, often perplexed by their beliefs, he sought to see the world through their eyes and understand their anger. Hoyle won the prestigious 2007 Will Glickman ‘Best New Play’ Award for “Tings Dey Happen,” which enjoyed extended runs at The Marsh and also Off-Broadway, where it was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show. Both “Tings Dey Happen” and “The Real Americans” are directed by Charlie Varon.
