by Howard Zinn, Directed by Jessica Loomer

Featuring: Kearney Jordan, David Hardie, Jacob Carruthers, Teresa Suter-Hughbanks, Joseph M. Smeader, Brook Bassett and Julie Berghammer

Historian and playwright Howard Zinn dramatizes the life of Emma Goldman, the anarchist, feminist, and free-spirited thinker who was exiled from the United States because of her outspoken views, including her opposition to World War I.  With his wit and unique ability to illuminate history from below, Zinn reveals the life of this remarkable woman. As Zinn writes in his Introduction, Emma Goldman "seemed to be tireless as she traveled the country, lecturing to large audiences everywhere, on birth control ("A woman should decide for herself"), on the falsity of marriage as an institution ("Marriage has nothing to do with love"), on patriotism ("the last refuge of a scoundrel") on free love ("What is love if not free?") and also on the drama, including Shaw, Ibsen, and Strindberg. The play will be of immense interest to feminists, American historians, and people interested in the long history of resistance and protest in the United States.

Stage Left Theater Association is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit organization committed to presenting works of social, political and intellectual merit. Your generous support for Stage Left and the arts in Spokane is greatly appreciated.

Our Mission

Our group is founded on the belief that live theater provides a mechanism for interpersonal interaction not provided by television and movies, that it should be a force for political, intellectual and social stimulation, and should be relevant to the daily lives of the audience and the players. We seek to broaden the involvement of the general population by engaging issues of topical value and stimulating the analysis and discussion of the structure and goals of society.
