Marx in Soho: A Play on History


Content Type


Marx in Soho: A Play on History — The premise of this witty and insightful “play on history” is that Karl Marx has agitated with the authorities of the afterlife for a chance to clear his name. Through a bureaucratic error, though, Marx is sent to Soho in New York, rather than his old stomping ground in London, to make his case. Howard Zinn introduces us to Marx’s wife, Jenny, his children, the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin and a host of other characters. [Publisher’s description.]
