Inspired by playwright Matthew-Lee Erlbach's travels around the United States, Handbook is a raw, incendiary, and darkly comic play giving voice to a panorama of ordinary citizens in extraordinary circumstances whose battles are reshaping 21st-century America. As he blazes through a powerful spectrum of diverse Americans, Erlbach gives voice to the voiceless from coal power to white power, K Street to Bourbon St, and the prophets and profits of today's America. The twelve dynamic characters in Erlbach's play are the face of America's turbulent present and a hand to its hopeful futurethe 99%.

Critics’ Reviews

The best parts of Mr. Erlbach’s tour of the United States are revelatory and surprising. It’s impressive to watch, but expect only a few of the people you meet courtesy of Mr. Erlbach’s fine incarnations to go home lodged in your brain.
