MY NAME IS GIDEON:

I'M PROBABLY GOING TO DIE, EVENTUALLY

Written & Performed by Gideon Irving

 

November 11th - December 11th, 2016

Rattlestick Playwrights Theater 

 

American Premiere

After a 5-STAR run at the Edinburgh Fringe, an armful of awards, and 500 living room performances, Gideon Irving makes his American stage debut with warm humor and tremendous heart. As a theatrical couch-surfing troubadour he has hopped from one town to the next on bike, rollerblades, and automobiles, performing and sleeping in the homes of perfect strangers. Now, with his banjo Rossana under his arms, Gideon invites audiences into his own living room on the NY stage. The instruments are eclectic, the stories are astonishing, and the spell he casts transports you out of this world.
