How do we tackle poverty in America? In our community? Over the course of 90 minutes, audiences listen, explore and ultimately decide how to spend $1,000 cash from that evening’s box office sales. An experiment in dialogue, collective decision-making, shared responsibility and the potential for art to transform our world, How to End Poverty in 90 Minutes (with 119 people you may or may not know) is spectacularly eclectic in form, often delightful and occasionally uncomfortable. The production engages audiences alongside community experts, blending adventurous theatricality with real time, task-based connective encounters amidst strangers. Regional Premiere.
The Gordon Square Theatre is ADA compliant featuring a ramped entrance and an all gender, wheelchair accessible restroom.
HOW TO END POVERTY IN 90 MINUTES (WITH 119 PEOPLE YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW) IS SOLD OUT FOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 25.
Tickets: $25 or Pay What You Can (via in-person or phone purchases only).
