"No Room for Wishing," a documentary play about Occupy Boston
Local theatre artist Danny Bryck performs his one-man documentary play "No Room for Wishing," chronicling the story of the occupation of Dewey Square, using the exact words of the people involved. Co-produced by Company One and Central Square Theater, playing at the Boston Center for the Arts this weekend and Central Square Theater 9/30-10/9.
Compiled from interviews and live recordings during the occupation of Dewey Square in Fall 2011, "No Room for Wishing" follows Occupy Boston from its formation, through clashes with the police, infighting among the activists, legal battles and collective victories, to its eviction by the City of Boston. One of Boston’s most dynamic young theater makers portrays dozens of real-life characters in this fiercely immediate, up-close-and-personal encounter with our city, our nation, and ourselves. Through the words of students, activists, bankers, medics, soldiers, lawyers and the homeless, "No Room for Wishing" asks, "What happens when you try to reinvent society?"
This weekend only, use the code C1DEWEY for $15 tickets to a performance Edge Boston calls, "a marvel to behold." A post-show discussion follows every performance.
