It’s the story of a man wandering through a homeless shelter looking for himself. He’s everywhere and nowhere, and unsure what to make of what he sees. He’ll tell you, though, with certainty, that he’s the real deal.
The poetic tale Underscore meets between Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’ and Allen Ginsberg’s ‘Howl,’ modern spoken word, and a one-man ‘Waiting for Godot.’ Experience this trip into wretched sobriety through the eyes of a soup kitchen visitor. He needs to know about the drunks on Wood Street and why the chess master is playing a game against a priest. This rhythmic story will draw you into its chaos and pull you closer to the truth and lies.
