"After the Revolution"

On Sunday, March 22, 2015, I saw another great production, After the Revolution, at Center Stage in Baltimore, MD. This play was written by Amy Herzog and directed by Lila Neugebauer. It was a highly politically charged play whereby the main character (Emma Joseph) had to wrestle with balancing her ideals and doing the right thing after learning the secret of her blacklisted grandfather.

Learning this family secret strained her family relationships as well as her personal and business relationships. All this while struggling to run a foundation based on what she thought was the goodness of her grandfather. It wasn't an easy decision to make and all were not pleased, but she did what was right to her.

I thoroughly enjoyed it! Great actors, great dialogue, great story! So, if you're in the area and looking for something thought provoking this could be the play for you. It runs from March 18 - May 17, 2015.

Emma Joseph is young, ambitions, talented, and about to put the ideals of her politically leftist, New York family into action. But a long-buried secret about her much-loved blacklisted grandfather threatens her work and throws her principles and loyalties into question. As the family, including grandmother Vera, wrestle with her legacy, Emma must chart her own course forward.
