Too long since South Coast Rep last hosted the legendary three-man political satire performance troupe Culture Clash, which once presented a version of Aristophanes’ The Birds here and, more recently, their provocative topical humor sketch revue. Unfamiliar with the commedia dell’arte-style stylings of actor-writers Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza? Read their original now-classic plays in Culture Clash: Life, Death and Revolutionary Comedy, listen to the revisionist hysterical-historical radio play Chavez Ravine performed by LA Theater Works and be ready for their return in Culture Clash (Still) in AmeriCCa, where they’ll likely send up US immigration policy, El Trumpo, our longest wars— on drugs, Iraq and poor people— for laughs and, yes, liberation.
