Events to be held in the PSI Theater at Durham Arts Council (120 Morris St.) *** Master storyteller Mike Daisey, whose "tragic comedy and patriotic outrage . . . identify him as a direct descendant of Mark Twain" (The Stranger), offers his latest raw, intelligent monologue for five days in PSI Theatre. *** Daisey has spent 15 years honing a deceptively spontaneous style of solo performance, which brings subtle theatrical underpinnings to apparently freewheeling talk. With quiet rage and fierce humor, he covers an endless array of topics: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, urban transit, the Department of Homeland Security, and most recently, Apple: 2012's controversial The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs was named "the best new play of the year" by The Washington Post. *** Daisey deftly weaves personal stories and investigative journalism into larger narratives, consistently leaving his audiences surprised, informed, entertained, and moved. Explore the enmeshed byways of the private and the public with "one of the finest solo performers of his generation" (NY Times). *** Mike Daisey is a co-presentation of Duke Performances and the PSI Theater at the Durham Arts Council.
