The social work department will present “Marx in Soho,” a
one-man play by Howard Zinn, Wednesday, March 28, at 6 p.m. in Holloway
Commons, the Squamscott Room. The free production of Iron Age Theatre
celebrates Social Work Month and UNH social work alumni.
“Marx in Soho” offers a dynamic, heartfelt examination of
world history and American politics. Frustrated with what he sees and
hears from our world, Karl Marx returns to earth for one hour, launching
into a passionate, funny, and moving defense of his life and political
ideas and highlighting the serious social issues facing the world today.
“The play provokes critical thinking about contemporary social
policy, yet does so in a creative and stimulating way. I think our students
will learn a great deal from the performance,” says Jerry Marx,
associate professor and chair of the department of social work.
