Award-winning Chicago stage veteran Roslyn Alexander fills the fascinating shoes of fearless activist Emma Goldman in this new solo drama that explores the passions behind the controversial figure's political agitation and the price she was willing to pay for it. A charismatic speaker and organizer, Goldman threatened the turn-of-the-century status quo with her liberal views on social issues and women's rights, but became infamous as an anarchist who advocated free love and who was jailed several times for demonstrating contraceptives, inciting to riot and opposing the draft. Dennis Zacek directs for the ShPIeL Theatre. Learn More

Written by Pearl Cleage.
It is the summer of 1930 in Harlem, New York. The Harlem Renaissance has given way to the harsher realities of the Great Depression. Although the streets are overrun with poverty, spirits and dreams are still high among African Americans. Until one lie takes a life, then dreams are broken and families are split forever.
