Marx in Soho
Program #ZINH046. Recorded in Boston, MA on November 01, 2000.
Marx in Soho, written in 1999 by historian Howard Zinn (1922-2010), is a one-man play on the life of Karl Marx. Zinn stated that he wrote the play to "show Marx as few people knew him, as a family man, struggling to support his wife and children." The play depicts Marx resurrected to defend the ideals of communism from the dehumanized version of it practiced in the former Soviet Union and to defend humanity from capitalism.
Brian Jones performs as Marx in this Boston Playwright's Theater production.
