DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire Department of Social Work presents “Marx in Soho,” a one-man play by Howard Zinn, Wednesday, March 28. The production of Iron Age Theatre celebrates Social Work Month and Social Work alumni of UNH.

  • “Marx in Soho” by Howard Zinn
  • Bob Weick as Karl Marx; directed by John Doyle
  • Wednesday, March 28, 6 p.m.
  • Squamscott Room, Holloway Commons, UNH
  • Free

“Marx in Soho” presents 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.
