Working from a stage play by Howard Zinn, actor Robert Weick of Philadelphia's Iron Age Theatre makes Karl Marx - who, ironically, never considered himself a Marxist - into a fully realized human being.
Bob Weick will play Karl Marx in the one-man show "Marx in Soho" Wednesday and Oct. 4 at Central Lakes College.
Philadelphia Weekly wrote, "There's an appealing purity to director John Doyle's production, as a lone storyteller stands before us and plainly relates the tale of the philosopher's life. It's capitalism for which Marx reserves his most impassioned oratory. He shakes his head sadly before admitting that since his death, 'Yes, capitalism has triumphed, but over whom?'"
Host families sought for visitors from Finland
The Fiasko and Floppi Theatre Companies of Joennsu, Finland, will be in residence Oct. 10-15 at Central Lakes College in Brainerd, and host families are being sought to accommodate these visitors.
Families with some proficiency in Finnish or Swedish are needed for four adults (three women, one man). Other visiting members have English proficiency ranging from sketchy to perfect. There are six teens (four girls and two boys), all with good English skills.
Host families would be asked to house the visitors for five nights. Some meals will be provided by the college. Transportation to and from the college would be helpful, but other arrangements can be made. Host families will be invited to see the companies perform their version of Finland's national epic "The Kalevala." They will also be invited to attend a visitor/host dinner.
Anyone interested in serving as a host family should contact Patrick Spradlin at 855-8255 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
