Description:

DUE TO EXTERNAL CONFLICTS, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE LOOK FORWARD TO RE-SCHEDULING AT LATER DATE IN OCTOBER. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THIS LATE NOTICE, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. 

"[Bob] Weick captured Marx and his ideas with the proper strength and subtlety, moving very effectively through a range of moods: humorous, angry, poignant." Howard Zinn - social historian, author (A People's History of the United States) and playwright (Marx in Soho).

Please join us for a special performance and post-show discussion (with guest author Dave Zirin) of Marx in Soho. Howard Zinn's play has been touring the United States in the last 14 years, and to wide critical and audience acclaim; its power and success is a testament to the power of people speaking to each other across the generations. Marx in Soho was first produced by Iron Age Theatre at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival in September 2004. With Zinn's encouragement, Weick began a national tour. and the two men remained in touch over the years, until Zinn’s passing in 2010. 

Zinn passed away only days before a performance in Santa Monica. What was originally scheduled as a performance of Marx in Soho, became a large memorial event for the deeply admired social historian. Weick’s experience with the play has augmented his personal activism; he has been dedicated to keeping the passionate legacies of Marx and Zinn alive through his performances of Marx in Soho.

What would Karl Marx say if he came back to present day America?

Well, hear for yourself!

Marx is back!

Run time: 70 minutes
