Marx In Soho: A Play on History
by Howard Zinn
Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Performed by Brian Jones
Brooklyn, New York
“Don’t you wonder: why is it necessary to declare me dead again and again?” This is the question posed by Karl Marx in Howard Zinn’s witty and insightful “play on history.” In this one-man performance, history’s most famous and oft-misrepresented radical is resurrected after agitating with the authorities of the afterlife to clear his name. Through a bureaucratic error, however, Marx lands in modern-day Soho, New York, rather than his old stomping ground in London, to make his case. Hilarity ensues.

This is a benefit performance for Haymarket Books 10th Anniversary. Join us for a party with Amy Goodman to celebrate at Galapagos Art Space on September 30th!
