I'm the Joke:
The Life, Stand-up, and Academic Research of Craig Draheim

Directed by Randy Stewart

May 16th - 18th, 24, 25 at 8:00pm

Matinee May 25th at 3:00pm

Comedian and humor scholar, Craig Draheim, uses selected material from three years of academic research, fifteen years of stand-up, and thirty years of personal stories to reevaluate his own work that he believes is at risk of becoming outdated or problematic. Both an examination of the anxieties around authenticity in the modern age and a satirical deconstruction of current comedy specials, I’m the Joke asks, how do you navigate between making peace with yourself and what you sell?

The Dropped Keys Theatre
Company at Matrix

May 31, 2024 at 8:00pm



"With Love, From Inside" is an original play crafted by the Dropped Keys Theatre Company, which includes University of Michigan undergraduate theater students and currently and formerly incarcerated writers and performers. The play emerged from students' visits to lead acting workshops with incarcerated individuals. It vividly recounts stories that incarcerated theater makers wanted to share with outside audiences, blurring the boundaries between the incarcerated and free world. Through letters and correspondence, it explores joys, struggles, resilience, injustice, and our shared humanity across prison walls.
