THE JUNKET
a new solo show, based on the scandalous novella, based on the even more scandalous actual events.

Written and Performed by Mike Albo
Directed by David Schweizer
Video Design by Larry Shea

From writer and performer Mike Albo comes this hilarious, harrowing tale of a writer named Mike Albo who has been living/trapped in New York City for the past 20 years. He starts writing a column for the country’s most influential newspaper and thinks he can finally afford his aspirational life. But after he goes on a crazy, over-the-top press junket and becomes a gossip item, he becomes a pawn in the acrimonious war between Old and New Media. Here’s a wildly funny, slightly painful account of New York’s back-biting media scene, the inner workings of fashion and promotion, and what it takes to survive as a writer in our chattering, challenging, increasingly unaffordable culture. “I was perilously close to exposing a secret underground economy of promotion: the gift bags and plus ones and galas and banquets that keep the city in motion, and keep underpaid writers at work. Basically, I became the Silkwood of Swag.
