WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Boston Playwrights Theatre presents Shouting Theatre in a Crowded Fire, a new play adapted from the writings of Howard Zinn written and directed by Wesley Savick. An ensemble of earnest young actors try their own "tiny acts" of idealism. Will their botched attempts result in optimism or despair? Righteousness or doubt? Equal parts Marx and Marx Brothers, Shouting Theatre in a Crowded Fire catapults the writings of historian and activist Howard Zinn through a dizzying American landscape of game shows, pop music, and fractured reenactments of the Group Theatre, the Living Theatre, and The Crucible.
