From Ariela Rotenberg ’10:
The Assembly, a collective of interdisciplinary theater artists founded by four Wesleyan alums (Stephen Aubrey ’06, Edward Bauer ’08, Nick Benacerraf ’08, Jess Chayes ’07), is bringing HOME/SICK back home to Wesleyan University for the show’s New England premiere. Written collectively by the company, the piece chronicles the rise and fall of the Weather Underground, from its origins in the radical student movement in the 1960s to its failed attempts to violently overthrow the U.S. government in the 1970s. The show was a Critics’ Pick in both Backstage and The New York Times, which hailed The Assembly as “a cutting-edge young theater collective”.
You can view the trailer for HOME/SICK above.
CFA Program Manager Erinn Roos-Brown writes in:
Join the conversation as Rob Rosenthal (Sociology) interviews Mark Rudd, an activist, organizer and founding member of The Weather Underground, an American radical left organization founded in 1969. The organization had as its goal “the violent overthrow of the
government of the US in solidarity with the struggles of the people of the world.” Listen to Rudd tell about the federal charges of bombing
and conspiracy that made him a fugitive for seven years.
The discussion is held in conjunction with the Outside the Box Theater Series production, HOME/SICK.
