           Jerry Levy as Karl Marx ina_Howard_Zinn_MARX_IN_SOHO

Imagine all Karl Marx would have to say after one hundred years of just being able to watch…

Howard Zinn’s “Marx in Soho” portrays the return of Marx. Embedded in some secular afterlife where intellectuals, artists, and radicals are sent, Marx is given permission by the administrative committee to return to Soho London to have his say. But through a bureaucratic mix–up, he winds up in SOHO in New York.  From there the audience is given a rare glimpse of a Marx seldom talked about; Marx the man.

 Historian and activist, Howard Zinn is most well known for his alternative portrait of American history, “A People’s History of the United States.”  Here Zinn proves himself  a talented playwright,   presenting a play that is both enlightening and entertaining!

 We gratefully acknowledge The Howard Zinn Revocable Trust for their kind permission for this presentation of Howard Zinn’s “Marx in Soho”.
