Why See The Time of Our Lies?
The Astonishing Story of Howard Zinn
Following an Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut co-produced by Hollywood heavyweight Viggo Mortensen and sponsored by the likes of Eddie Vedder and Tim Robbins amongst others, the powerful life story of celebrated American historian, playwright and socialist philosopher Howard Zinn makes its way to London's Park Theatre for a hotly anticipated Summer run, 30 July - 10 August 2019.
Zinn's story starts during the tumult and bedlam of World War Two. As a solider, he was part of the operation that dropped bombs on the city of the city of Rouen in France, a terrible event that weighed heavy on his soul. After the events of the war, he turned his troubled heart towards making the world a better place, becoming an activist, teacher and guiding light of the world's historical, wartime, class and racial issues. Told through his own words, first-person accounts from soliders and the medium of Japanese Butoh dance, the production mirrors Zinn's own crusade for political transparency, inclusion and democracy for all.
