Jessica Litwak’s Emma Goldman Trilogy explores the life and work of the in/famous anarchist Emma Goldman. Filled with excitement, humor and pathos, the plays portray Goldman’s time in prison, her public life, and her relationship with her life-long comrade Alexander Berkman: one of the most unusual love stories of all time. There will be a panel discussion and themed refreshments after each play. Developed with support from United Nations Women, No Passport Press, La MaMa ETC, TheatreLab, The Women’s Project and Productions, The Lark Theatre and The Emma Goldman Papers.
