American Paradox Gets Reading

Perry Street Theatricals is presenting a reading of American Paradox a new play by Samuel Warren Joseph Directed by Mitch Levine.

American Paradox is a darkly comic new drama whose theme addresses the phenomenon of right-wing working class voters who embrace alternative facts that fuel their anger and resentment, which in turn only enslaves them to lifetimes of struggle and futility.  

The Masons are a family in rural Kentucky who have gathered for Christmas. Their lifelong friend, Reverend Bobby, a hugely successful televangelist, has just been elected to Congress and is coming over for Christmas Dinner. Disturbing secrets are revealed as all hell breaks loose – and everyone’s life is changed irrevocably.
