Rebel Voices Opens on November 18

REBEL VOICES, a new play based on Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove’s (Haymarket Press)  best-selling book Voices of a People’s History of the United States (http://www.sevenstories.com/book/?GCOI=58322100666900).

November 10 – December 16
Opening night, November 18, with special appearance by Howard Zinn
TICKETS: $21 in previews, $41 after November 17
By phone: 212-352-3101

The play, in its debut at Culture Project, combats hopelessness by igniting the forces responsible for arousing change and celebrating the indomitable human spirit.  REBEL VOICES is a testimony to the strength of the individual voice, as told through first-hand accounts from people who have shaped the course of U.S. history, often struggling against seemingly insurmountable odds.

Featured voices include Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, and Malcolm X, as well as lesser-known figures like Maria Stewart, a pioneer Black abolitionist from the early 1800s, Stella Nowicki, a union organizer in the 1930s, and contemporary voices such as Iraq war resister Camilo Mejia and Patricia Thompson, a survivor of Hurricane Katrina.

Acclaimed musician Allison Moorer and actors April Yvette Thompson, Thom Rivera, and Morgan Hallett will lead the permanent cast, which will also feature a host of rotating special guest performers. Confirmed guests already include Danny Glover, Wallace Shawn, Ally Sheedy, Eve Ensler, and David Strathairn.

REBEL VOICES is written by Rob Urbinati, with Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove, and directed by Will Pomerantz and Rob Urbinati.
