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.
