How to Not Save the World with Mr. Bezos

Calderwood Pavilion, 527 Tremont Street

June 20 – June 22 2024

In the near-future fairy tale How to Not Save the World with Mr. Bezos, mysterious journalist Cherry Beaumont interviews an increasingly vulnerable Jeffrey Bezos about the ethics of being a billionaire, and whether the masses gathering outside might deserve a bigger piece of the pie.

A throne of red Solo cups, a pile of teeth, the ghost of Pete Seeger, and a little something for dinner. It’s 2030, and it’s illegal to be a billionaire. Jeffrey Bezos has agreed to give an interview in exchange for information on the federal case against him. But there’s something off about journalist Cherry Beaumont, a crowd is forming outside, and the onstage Fact Checker has a few important clarifications to make. In this near-future fairy tale, the fall of capitalism is about to get very messy.
