AFTER THE REVOLUTION is a bold and moving portrait of an American family, thrown into an intergenerational tailspin, forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy.
This is a part of our TSP Unplugged Reading Series, where audiences go behind the scenes with The Seeing Place to experience our work being created before your eyes by our artists "unplugged."
This is an event unlike any other reading you'll attend:
• The doors open at 7pm with snacks and a cash bar.
• At 7:30pm we’ll begin with the audience observing our actors in their final rehearsal, getting a special look at how actors lay the ground-work for an evening’s performance.
• Around 8:15pm we’ll begin the reading with 8 of our talented artists directed by TSP’s Artistic Director.
• Immediately following the reading we’ll discuss what was seen - What is the modern relevance of the play? What was the play's impact on the audience and does it make us view the world differently? These and other questions will be explored during this lively event.
Tickets are free but a suggested donation of $10 is gratefully accepted at the door. The evening includes snacks and a cash bar.
SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY: The brilliant, promising Emma Joseph proudly carries the torch of her family's Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved.
