singular artists proudly presents Things Fell Apart, with Jon Ronson LIVE! Jon shares unexpected and spellbinding human tales of the Culture Wars featuring new stories and ones from his hit BBC Radio 4 podcast with special guest and Q&A live at Liberty Hall Theatre, 10 June 2022.
These past few years Jon has watched friends get caught up in the online culture wars to such a degree they’ve lost everything – their careers, their wellbeing. And by culture wars, Jon means the battle for dominance between conflicting values. Jon wanted to understand how things fell apart, and so he went back in time to find the origin stories, the pebbles thrown in the pond creating the ripples. He had no idea how unexpected, how spellbinding, those tales would be.
