Play: Marx in Soho

Marx in Soho, a play, has been a collaborative effort between members of the International Socialist Organization, the Thomas Merton Center, and the history departments of Pitt and La Roche college. This is the second showing of the play, which was also performed in Pittsburgh during the G20 Peoples Summit. The play was well attended and a lot of buzz surrounded it so we decided to bring the actor, Brian Jones, back from Chicago to perform it again. It just so happened that it turned out to be well timed considering the author, Howard Zinn's, recent passing.

We will be hosting the play at the Graduate School of Public Health Auditorium on Saturday February 20th at 7:30 pm. It is free and will be followed by a discussion kicked off by members of the endorsing organizations.

There will be a large number of books for sale after the play including other titles by Zinn like A Peoples History and Peoples Voices.

There is also another corresponding event the evening prior to the play. Brian Jones will be hosting a talk on Black Liberation and Socialism also followed by discussion at the meeting room in Panera Bread Company on Forbes Avenue in Oakland. The talk will be at 7 pm.
