Upstream Theater presents the U.S. premiere of Infected by Albert Ostermaier, translated by Philip Boehm.
A day trader in quarantine delivers a relentless, near-manic monologue that reveals his derailment from the fast track, and the resultant downward, deadly spiral… as though he may have contracted some horrible virus from the stock market monitors themselves. This gripping piece by one of Germany’s leading poet/playwrights is a relentless collage of ideas and images, where past and present collide and where one man’s innermost thoughts ricochet inside his head with all the volatility of a stock market in crisis. A very timely psychological study of a man and a society infected by greed.
Patrick Siler directs Alan Knoll in this one-man tour-de-force, which features Soundscape by David A. N. Jackson.

Fascinating and dramatically compelling, this eloquent play depicts the supposed meeting of two of the most important men of modern time: Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Differing in their philosophies, but alike in their mutual respect, the two men debate their varying approaches to the same grave social problems.

Transangelic Exodus, Ezra Furman’s second album for Bella Union, is a new landmark for the American singer-songwriter: “not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir,” according to its author. “A personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga.”

The music is as much of an intense, dramatic event, full of brilliant hooks, with an equally evolved approach to recorded sound to match Furman’s narrative vision. In honour of this shift, his backing band has been newly christened: The Boy-Friends are dead, long live The Visions. In other words, the man who embodies the title of his last album Perpetual Motion People is still on the move… Or in the vernacular of the new album, on the run.

Just as Furman’s band hasn’t really changed, so his musical DNA remains intact – a thrilling, literate form of garage-punk rooted in The Velvet Underground, Jonathan Richman and ‘50s rock’n’roll. But Transangelic Exodus is noticeably different to its predecessors. “2016 was a hard year,” Furman recalls. “While the political and cultural conversation devolved in a very threatening way, we travelled and toured a lot. We saw ourselves coming to the end of what we were, and we wanted to become something new.”

Dr. Anne Spoerry treated hundreds of thousands of people across rural Kenya over the span of 50 years. A member of the renowned Flying Doctors Service, the French-born Spoerry earned the cherished nickname, "Mama Daktari"—"Mother Doctor.” Now, in the first comprehensive account of her life, Dr. Spoerry's revered selflessness gives way to a past marked by rebellion, submission, and personal decisions that earned her another nickname—this one sinister—working as a "doctor" in a Nazi concentration camp. “In Full Flight” explores the question of whether it is possible to rewrite one's troubled past simply by doing good in the present.

Left Bank Books welcomes veteran community organizer Gordon Whitman, who will sign and discuss his new book, "Stand Up!: How to Get Involved, Speak Out, and Win in a World on Fire," with Rev. Cassandra Gould!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Stand Up!" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Each of us faces a moment of truth—at a time of crisis, do we stand up and speak out or retreat into our private lives? Veteran organizer Gordon Whitman shows that we have the power we need to create a racially and economically just society. But it won’t happen if we stay on the sidelines sharing social media posts and signing online petitions. We win only if we’re willing to join other people in the kind of face-to- face organizing that has powered every successful social movement in history. Whitman describes five types of conversations that enable people to build organizations that can solve local problems and confront the greatest challenges facing our country—from gun violence to climate change.

With special thanks to Missouri Faith Voices.
