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

This play was okay. The acting was decent, especially by the actor who played the youngest of the three men trapped. However, the script dragged at times and the use of the silhouetted figures in the background to illustrate past events was distracting. You were so busy trying to figure out what they were doing that you lost track of the dialog. Plus, there were a few that I didn't understand which character's past they were displaying. Also, most of the action took place on the floor of the stage and it was very difficult to see from the seats further back. Given this, I'm not sure I would recommend this play to others.
