*This show runs 90 minutes with no intermission*

What does it mean to be radical? MARCUS/EMMA mashes together two of American History's wildest activist leaders - Jewish Anarchist Emma Goldman and Black Nationalist Marcus Garvey -- and launches them into a no-holds-barred, sex-fueled, bloody-minded battle to rekindle the smouldering flames of their legacies. Tuomanen's vibrant voice brings the political passion, tender humanity, and savage humor of Goldman and Garvey to life in a timely play that challenges the audience to continually question what it means to be American.

MEET THE CAST

AUDIENCE DISCUSSIONS:
 We are scheduling brief optional (20-30 minute) audience discussion sessions in the theatre after every performance during the run (in addition to our usual coffee conversations and Speaker Sunday events). These discussions will be facilitated by local theatre artists and are included as an opportunity for our InterAct audiences to talk about what they experienced during the performance and connect about the themes this play reflects. 

Think of the discussion as a short optional interactive second act.   

ACTION HAPPY HOURS:

We are scheduling happy hours for some performances that will feature discounts on drinks as well as well as on tickets. These will be coordinated with local socially active groups and will also have an action element (making calls, emails, letter writing, organization education, etc). More about these as they are fully booked.
