"Bucky"

    A One-Man Play about the life of R. Buckminster Fuller

    Written by Alice Wilson in Dialogue with Brad Armstrong

    Meet with R. Buckminster Fuller, inventor, architect, engineer, mathematician, poet and philosopher-clearly one of the most exciting minds of our century. Brad Armstrong's characterization evokes the essence of a talk with Bucky, congenial, entertaining, wide ranging, humanistic and sharp witted. Using colorful props and projections, BUCKY takes the audience on a transformative journey into the playful mind of a genius at work. Here is a man who set out to change the course of history, not through politics but through invention.

    The physical objects he created like the geodesic dome and Dymaxion Map deliberately and spontaneously re-orient us to reality. Bucky most treasured human beings' unique ability to understand and participate in the underlying patterns of the universe. It was his unshakable belief that each of us here on "Spaceship Earth" has a singular contribution to make toward bettering the whole planet's welfare- and that exactly that, and no less, is the success for which mankind was designed.
