The Communist Manifesto for Children
June 9 at 8:00PM // The Cabaret // FREE
presented by Cocodrilo Triste
The languid and laconic Latin American countryside. The 1950s. Four children, three bourgeois and one proletariat, steal Marx and Engels’ manifesto from the house of a scary old farmer and decide to play and act out passages from the book. Fun and games that lead to introspective journeys, betrayal, and possibly an exorcism. And fever. Children seem to get fever all the time. A play for grownups about class, boredom, innocence lost, and the battle between the Spectre of Communism and the Spirit of Capitalism. Which team are you on?
This is the culmination of a workshop process funding by the OAC and TAC under the Buddies Residency Program.
