with Greg Shapiro, The American Netherlander.

Who do you call when you need a sea wall? The Dutch.

Which country’s thriving with sea levels rising? The Dutch.

Who brings you luck when your container ship’s stuck? The Dutch.

When it comes to Climate Change, the Netherlands has a lot of answers to world’s challenges. But they don’t like to talk about it. Yes, Dutch people are producing the world’s first solar-powered car, creating lab-grown meat, cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch… but they don’t like to brag. The Netherlands is like a superhero obsessed with their secret identity.

Enter The American Netherlander! Greg Shapiro is Dutch enough to be proud of the Netherlands – and American enough to not care how loud he is about it.

DUTCH TO THE RESCUE is Greg Shapiro’s seventh solo show. Previous shows include Leaving Trumpland and How to Be Orange.
