Pounding Nails In The Floor

Pride Arts Center - The Broadway
4139 N. Broadway Chicago

Eric Bogosian's play is a series of 12 monologues by 12 different men who are all unhappy with the way they feel society has left them behind, all performed by Jeff Award winning actor and Pride Films and Plays artistic associate Donterrio Johnson. The twelve characters are all bubbling and scratching at the seams of social unrest. The social strata depicted in the play range from the Baby-Boomers to the 80s punk-rock and hip-hop explosion of New York in this dirty, dangerous and dazzling one-man show.

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...Director Dambacher brilliantly steered Johnson, ricocheting him from wall to wall. Not all of the men were angry on the surface; some used humor to mask their indignation, and some didnít even know that they were angry, they were so trapped by the web of tripe that society can spin. Dambacher crafted the ticking time bomb for the explosions intricately as the seething, slow burns. The linking factor of anger proved that whether someone is labeled a deadbeat by society or grills sirloins behind a white picket fence, internal fears and doubts cannot be assuaged. With a social atmosphere that is obsessed to excess with outside appearance, this production proves that the disconnect between our personal identity and our public identity will forever disconnect us from each other."
