COTU presents an over-the-top evocation of the iconic inventor of gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson — in all his paranoid pill-popping, booze-swilling, gun-toting, phantasmagorical-prose-spewing glory! Come see James Cartee play the drumbeat of GONZO in his farewell performances as Hunter, taking us through misadventures with the Hell’s Angels, the ’68 Democratic Convention, his run for sheriff, the triumph of his scribbling the 1970 Kentucky Derby- among others. Hunter speaks to the rise of an American nightmare to discussing the death of the American Dream all while worrying about his family, his personal liberties and freedom- on mescaline of course!
