WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

1931- is the story of Adam, who is fired from his warehouse job. Proud and determined, Adam sets out to find another job, only to discover hundreds of other men in the same situation. Without a paycheck, Adam soon realizes how much he has to lose: health, dignity, hope, and possibly even the young shop girl he loves. 1931- it is the story of all the men and women, young and old in Adam's situation. They sleep in the parks, beg for coins and even turn to crime when there seems to be no other option. When their story comes to a head, there seems only one way left to turn: revolution. 1931- was the second play produced by The Group Theatre, 'the most famous American theatre company, which existed from 1931-1940, featuring the talents of Lee Strasberg, Clifford Odets, Stella Adler, & Sanford Meisner. The original production lasted 12 performances, though the stories of the amazed reaction of the "balcony crowd," whose story was being depicted onstage, are legendary. The upper-class orchestra-set rejected the play for its alleged sensationalism.
