FACULTY MEMBER JERRY LEVY TO STAR IN ONE-MAN HOWARD ZINN PLAY, “MARX IN SOHO”
MARLBORO, VT – Karl Marx is alive, well, and on his way to Marlboro College to talk about the fall of communism, his life, and the relevance of the collapse of the Soviet Union to today’s world through a one-man play, “Marx in Soho.”
According to Jerry Levy, who teaches sociology at Marlboro and will play Marx, the one-man show examines not only the political issues of Marx’s day, but also his interpersonal ones with his wife and daughter. It points to the relevance of those issues today, in modern life, according to Levy.
Directed by Michael Fox Kennedy, “Marx in Soho” will show on Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3 at 8 p.m. both nights in the Whittemore Theater of Marlboro College. An encore performance is set for the following weekend, April 9 and April 10, both nights at 8 p.m., at the Hooker-Dunham Theater in downtown Brattleboro. The later performance is to benefit Brattleboro Area Peace and Justice Group.
This play is free and open to the public. The Whittemore Theater is fully accessible. For more information or for weather cancellation information contact Erin George, Marlboro College Public Relations Coordinator.
