new report

Danbert Nobacon reads from Three Dead Princes

Three Dead Princes”  was written by Danbert Nobacon, founding member of the band Chumbawamba. He describes “Three Dead Princes” as both an anarchist fairy tale, and “an unfairy tale for nine to ninety-nine year olds.” The story is a tale of a 13 year old princess, played by Zoe Loranger, who finds herself on a quest to have her father, played by SW Conser, and their kingdom from ruthless invaders. According to Grahm Storrs in the New York Review of Books, “It has all the usual fairytale elements—a kindly old king, a wise and resourceful fool, a stepmother, a witch, wicked villains, talking animals, hairy half-men, and so on—and the tale unfolds in a perfectly satisfying way.”

Tue, 06/05/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
As Joe prepares for his annual hiatus, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

 The State of the Union is screwed. Four years into the New Depression, the economy still lags and working people suffer while the ruling class rolls in profligate wealth. Inequality grows more extreme. The wars drag on. The modern surveillance state is a reality. The planet grows warmer.

What's to be done? Do we play by the rules, and rely on our democratic institutions? If so, whom do we support? Does it matter? Is it time for a more creative solution?

In Joe's last show before his annual summer break, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.
