In these seven monologues, recorded before live audiences at New York's Performance Space 122, Daisey tells true stories from his life that range from the terrible beauty of his rural Maine hometown, to shipping weapons to the Middle East, to the unintentionally hilarious dangers of defending free speech.
In Where Water Meets With Water, Mike explores the geography of his hometown in far northern Maine, where the natives wait for the St. John's River's ice to melt every spring and barber shops are filled with talk of how many bodies of the winter's lost will be found headed out to sea. Playing counterpoint are the details of a new Manhattan institution: a divorce party for friends who want their marriage to disintegrate cleanly.
Listen to all seven of Mike Daisey's All Stories Are Fiction.
