Arts-Waves – February 20, 2017: Dan Hoyle

Dan Hoyle, playwright and performer of “The Real Americans,” playing at the Marsh in Berkeley through February 25, 2017, is interviewed by Richard Wolinsky.

Dan Hoyle has been taking his show, “The Real Americans” around the United States since 2010, with stops at Berkeley Rep and other places. Based on interviews conducted during a trip across the country via van, “The Real Americans’” has been expanded and revised to reflect the Trump candidacy and presidency. After Berkeley, he takes the play to Washington DC and elsewhere.

In this interview, he talks about his show and its political elements, performs excerpts from the show, and discusses his career. The son of Geoff Hoyle of Pickle Family Circus, Dan Hoyle has multiple degrees, and spent time as a Fulbfight Scholar in Nigeria, the basis for his solo play, “Tings Dey Happen.”

An extended version of this interview aired on KPFA’s Arts-Waves program.
