A tongue-in-cheek Revolution for those suffering from first world problems, My Petite Bourgeois Revolution isnâ€™t about starvation, cake eating and guillotines. Itâ€™s about the lack of WiFi, overpriced coffee and overloaded transit. Itâ€™s an urbane revolution for the comfortable bourgeois elite, the art student sophisticate, and the bored bohemian who can’t get cable.
Poking fun at the problems or examining the minutia of every day life while simultaneously revealing that we actually have it pretty good compared to a 1920â€™s Ukrainian Kulak, My Petite Bourgeois Revolution is a cutting, acerbic and fun exploration of our daily lives.
The show runs May 18th – June 5th at Northern Contemporaryâ€‹. Details here.
