"The Social Stage," a one of a kind L.A based social theatre presents Howard Zinn's "Marx in Soho."
In this funny, timely, historic and political play, Karl Marx gets a chance to stand in front of an audience for one hour and clear his name.
Starring Gera Hermann and directed by Ye'ela Rosenfeld, this one man show will make you wonder about our society and leave you with questions and ideas for many weeks to come.
The play is followed by a conversation about Marxism, lead by expert speakers and accompanied with free wine and snacks. Don't miss this opportunity to debate with strangers the future of our country and the world. This entire experience is "pay-what-you-can" and the seating is very limited,
Don't miss this!

"While the monodrama proves more informative and educational than theatrically powerful, it is nevertheless a tribute to the budding theatre company — The Social Stage — which under the artistic direction of Ye'ela Rosenfeld aims to couple its socially relevant productions with salon-like discussions based on the socially conscious stagings it produces... The Social Stage is the first and only such theater company in Los Angeles. Its mission is to “encourage audiences to connect and converse about social and economic issues.” It is a noble and necessary purpose that couldn't be more timely."

"Whatever flaws, with which one might challenge Zinn's historical writing, Marx in Soho is a straightforward and precise depiction of the great man reinforcing Marx's adage: “The most revolutionary act one can engage in is to tell the truth.” An unfortunate short run of this play is its only flaw. Tickets are offered at “Pay What You Can Afford” and each performance is followed by a “conversation about Marxism.” Serious discussion and solid drama, a wonderful combination."
