Are you a Patriot? Join us for an evening of democracy in action!
Eyedrum is host of the national premiere for …. PATRIOT ACT : Presidential Road Trip 2016… Live!
Los Angeles-based solo performer Mike Schlitt kicks off his national electoral listening tour in Atlanta with the premiere of PATRIOT ACT! Eyedrum hosts this performance in conjunction with a Democracy Salon featuring local Atlanta artists. This will be an evening of art and conversation about democracy, the 14th Amendment, and what it means to be American.
PATRIOT ACT is 47-minute comedic theatrical roller-coaster ride through United States history, from our humble origins as a tiny mercantile republic to the vast global empire we’ve become today. The show is everything you’ll ever need to know about Democracy in America in just 47 minutes — plus puppets! It's also an exploration of the gap between the promise of the American idea and its deeply flawed execution, as well as an invitation for audiences to engage in more active citizenship, to let their own voices be heard through art, advocacy, activism, and action.

About Mike -

Mike Schlitt is an award-winning Los Angeles-based writer, producer, director, and performer. He’s been making theater for more than 25 years. He’s an ardent history buff and a firm believer in both American exceptionalism and limited attention spans. He suspects he is not the only American who's mad as Hell about the state of our Union, but has trouble finding time in his much-too-busy life to do much about it. Through this national listening tour, Mike hopes to break through the cycle of disengagement, to find pathways to positive change, and to build a nation of citizen-activists fomenting incremental revolution...47 minutes at a time.
