Violence: The Misadventures of Spike Spangle, Farmer - The Actors' Gang

Violence: The Misadventures of Spike Spangle, Farmer

  • 2018

  • Written by Tim Robbins and Adam Simon

  • Directed by Bob Turton

Originally written and performed in 1986, this no-holds barred satire of militarism and media manipulation tells the story of Spike Spangle, a down on his luck farmer who gets sucked into a whirlwind of celebrity and patriotism. He joins Superman on billionaire Max Enormous’ Celebrity Space Shuttle and a nefarious plot leads to the deification of Spike Spangle as an American hero.
