As subversive as it is hilarious, Monopoly! illuminates the issues we confront under corporate rule, and explores the choices and struggles individuals face living in a system that recognizes only profit and loss. Monopoly! has been performed in full productions at the 2005 Spoleto Festival, American Repertory Theatre, the Ohio Theatre (with Les Freres Corbusier), Capitol Hill Arts Center, the Bumbershoot Arts Festival, and the Noorderzon Festival in the Netherlands, after receiving workshops at Manhattan Theatre Club, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and Portland Stage Company.
Works of fiction can be truer than non-fiction, but not when the author fails to respect his audience enough to tip them off. Dave Barry's stories are truer when he strays from the facts because the humor drives home the point. With Daisy I simply never know what to believe.
