A documentary play about Occupy Boston
Boston 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, and playing at 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" provides a candid and multifaceted portrait, asking, "What happens when you try to reinvent society?"
After a run at the Boston Center for the Arts, "No Room for Wishing" performs 9/30, 10/2-3, and 10/7-9 at Central Square Theater, 450 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge. Written and performed by Danny Bryck, directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian.
