About this event

What would you do if a group of your fellow office workers won the lottery? The Other Ones tracks the actions and reactions of multiple characters in the wake of this cataclysmic event, tracing the effect it has on them, for good and bad, over the following year. Some dig in, some quit, some go more than a little crazy. One commits suicide by jumping off the roof of the office, then returns as a ghost to haunt the winners. Funny, tragic, and real, The Other Ones shines a light on our contemporary relationships to money, work, and one another.

Dan Brady’s Subtexts is a collection that uncovers the language within language and examines how layers of meaning add and subtract from each other. In an innovative form, Brady uses erasure poetry to create something new entirely. The poems here concern themselves with history, politics, the environment, our ability and failure to communicate, and more. Experimental while still accessible, Brady’s erasure poetry finds the freedom to say all that there is to say—and reveals even that which is left unsaid.
