SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER
by Ariel Dorfman
At the Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center
For our sixth-annual May Day Performance, Subversive
Theatre was very proud to present a staged reading of Tony Award-winning
Chilean Playwright Ariel Dorfman's powerful new play SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER.
Adapted from the book (of the same title) by Kerry Kennedy, this roughly
hour-long docudrama called upon eight actors to perform the testimonials of
over fifty different human rights activist from all over the world.
Shocking, empowering, uplifting, and always inspiring,
these testimonials spanned just about every human rights issue imaginable and
included the words of activists like Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Elie Wiesel,
Sister Helen Prejean, and many, many more.

Held in the screening room of the Hallwalls Contemporary
Arts Center, this production featured a stellar cast that put on a
highly impassioned performance. And, as always, we were honored
to do our small part to help keep the tradition of May Day alive!
