TARGET GOLDBERG (HELP! ROGUE GOVERNMENT AGENTS ARE TRYING TO FRAME ME!) is a live, internet-assisted story-telling event created and performed by David J Goldberg.
A civil war is unfolding today within the intelligence world, and Goldberg finds himself caught in the middle of a skirmish. Top secret analytic software has identified him as an ideal target in a test-run of a program designed to neutralize potential dissidents. With the help of a disgruntled insider, Goldberg is trying to sabotage this rogue entrapment program by going public with his story.
THE LATEST: After a very successful 2016 festival run in the Capital Fringe, Fringe NYC, and United Solo, the TARGET GOLDBERG team is reevaluating our next steps. A film project based on the live performance is now in the development phase, and a new version of the live show updated for the Trump era may be brought to the stage as early as late 2017.

2016 FESTIVAL REVIEWS: _______________________________________________ "TARGET GOLDBERG is a horror story. It highlights the normalcy of the fear of violence which we live through every day, and our subjugation to the media and law enforcement narratives produced in the wake of such an attack. More than that, it highlights how any of us would be powerless in the situation that Goldberg faces.
From a technical acting perspective, Goldberg’s story has a fine amount of texture to it. Goldberg the author has given his “character” ups and downs, some unexpected, balancing his “real self” and his “paranoid self” very well. As an actor, Goldberg obviously has talent, especially for psychological realism." - Alan Katz, dctheaterscene.com _______________________________________________
“Goldberg” plays his “role” with modesty and charm, almost convincing us that this is just another “production" ....
If the universe(s) is engaged in a Manichean struggle between good and evil, I for one appreciate getting the facts. " - Sophia Howes, dcmetrotheaterarts.com _______________________________________________ "BOTTOM LINE: Target Goldberg is an inventive, thought-provoking show about surveillance, truth, and power that will leave you questioning your own beliefs and giving real thought to how our everyday lives are shaped by unseen forces....
We did it! We were able to raise $6000 to cover expenses like festival fees, venue insurance, rehearsal space rentals, travel expenses, certain essential equipment we need in order to document the process for posterity, and payment for all the artists helping to bring this 2016 festival run to life.
Donations are still welcome. Please feel free to make a contribution of any size to help us continue building and promoting this project.
