Untitled Theater Company #61 presents a new stage adaptation of Jack London's 1908 dystopian novel of the same name. More…
Written as political propaganda, 'The Iron Heel' tells the story of an election between a socialist revolutionary and an entrenched oligarch. The oligarch prevails, turning America fascist, and inspiring the Marxist revolution. Though it's set in the early- to mid-20th century, its themes nonetheless have obvious relevance during our current election season. This is a deliberately low-tech production, a gathering that can travel to multiple venues, public and private. Reflecting socialist philosophy, all performances are either free or pay what you can. Most performances take place at Brooklyn's South Oxford Space, however, check the show's official website for a complete list of venues.
