The Last Hippie: A Western Novel

Back for one night only, The Last Hippie: A Western Novel was one of the longest running shows of 2009. As part of the Whitefire Theatre’s 30th anniversary celebration, The Last Hippie: A Western Novel is a collection of monologues, written and performed by Vincent Mann. It asks the question, “What happened to the last of the baby boomers?” The first baby boomers changed the world: fought for civil rights, fought against the Vietnam War, fought old stereotypes and ways of thinking. But by the 1970s, the last of us had no cause to attach to, and few battles left to fight, yet yearned for meaning in the meaningless ‘70s. These monologues chart our humorous attempts to forge our own identity, make our mark, and discover the meaning of our young lives. It didn’t work out like we had hoped, but it was an amazing journey to the heart of the American Dream … further. Tickets are $15.

Whitefire Theatre
13500 Ventura Blvd.
Sunday, Jan. 29, 8 p.m.

For tickets, call (818) 642-3926.
