Portland Playhouse Presents "After the Revolution"
May 7, 2014 7:30 PM
Portland Playhouse, 602 NE Prescott Street, Portland, OR
By Amy Herzog
Directed by Tamara Fisch
Join your fellow Brandeisians for a night at the theater! Amy Herzog, one of the most heralded playwrights to emerge onto the New York theatre scene in years, will make her Portland debut with
"After the Revolution."
What happens to family loyalty when you've been disillusioned? Proud and talented Emma Joseph is heir to a leftist family tradition and has become the public advocate for her late, famously blacklisted American Communist grandfather's legacy, starting a fund in his name to fight for others who have been wrongly accused. But when evidence emerges that her grandfather may have indeed shared some secrets with the Soviets, Emma struggles to reconcile her disappointment with her political beliefs – and uncovers multi-generational fault lines in her family along the way.
Event Chair: Brian Weaver, MFA '08, artistic director, Portland Playhouse
