Jessica Litwak's Emma Goldman Trilogy explores the life and work of the in/famous anarchist Emma Goldman. Filled with excitement, humor and pathos, the plays portray Goldman's time in prison, her public life, and her relationship with her life-long comrade Alexander Berkman: one of the most unusual love stories of all time. The trilogy celebrates a life full of love, passion, and revolution. There will be a panel discussion and themed refreshments after each play. Panelists and actors will be announced shortly.
1:00 Love, Anarchy and Other Affairs (circa 1901)
