"High Concept comedy that is Provocative and Smart" - The Denver Post
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
“Hilarious,” “Intelligent,” “Provocative,” “Scorching” all describe Robert Dubac’s new solo show The Book of Moron. Combining theater with stand-up, Dubac buckles us up for a fast-paced joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy. Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity, he crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. The Book of Moron is a hilarious journey down the rabbit hole of hype and spin in search of the elusive truth. It may be offensive to some but there’s laughter for all.
Robert Dubac’s The Book of Moron makes its appearance at Theater Works in Peoria for a limited engagement beginning June 20. Tickets priced at $20 are on sale now by phone at (623) 815-7930 or online at the Theater Works Website or at the theatre box office which opens one hour prior to the shows.
In The Book of Moron, Dubac portrays Robert, an everyman who has lost sight of the bigger picture. He’s been bombarded by so much information, white noise and hype and spin he can’t remember who he is or what he believes in. Does he have a purpose? Can he think for himself? Is the truth in the details or in the pudding? He hasn’t a clue. He racks his brain searching for answers. Instead he finds voices. Inner voices who pull him into a hysterical parallel universe in search of the bigger picture. It’s a head trip – on a banana peel.
First, his Voice of Reason convinces him to think outside the box but not without a fight from his Inner Idiot. Then his Common Sense teaches him critical thought, so he can think for himself instead of relying on the Media. Next, his Inner Child shows him how to use just enough innocence to question authority without getting spanked. Then his Inner A** Hole urges him to use both four syllable and four letter words to battle censorship.
Along the way he finds his Scruples who encourage him to open The Door of Truth. But when it hits him in the head, he realizes the ultimate paradox - the truth hurts and is funny at the same time.
Before it’s over, his Voice of Reason returns to solve partisan politics with an idea so absurd it borders on brilliance. And his Common Sense levies a Stupid Tax on ignorance while scolding religion for taking the “fun” out of fundamentalism.
It’s all for one and one for all as Robert's inner voices take him on a freight train of provocative thought to find the bigger picture and wake up from the coma of modern day life.
Robert Dubac belongs to that rare breed of monologists; using words, characters and humor to create a show that is hard to categorize but effortless to enjoy.
