My name is Danny Bryck and I'm a theatre artist in Boston. I'm currently
performing and co-producing a one-man documentary play I created about
Occupy Boston called "No Room for Wishing" that I'd love to share with
everyone at ACT-MA. The play is made up entirely of exact words of people
involved with Occupy Boston from interviews and recordings during the
occupation of Dewey Square last fall. Told from the perspective of 30+
people, it chronicles the story of what happened at Dewey Square and
explores the state of our city, our country and our political culture, as
well as the intricacies and challenges of protest and consensus.
Here's a posting about the play. Feel free to pass it on! And please come
check out the show. We have a group discount rate - email
kshanahan at companyone.org for $15 tickets for a group on $10 or more. Thanks!
*"No Room for Wishing," a documentary play about Occupy Boston plays in
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. Read this preview in the Boston Globe:
