If you live in New York – See this show! It is a tour de force – a breathtaking, heart-wrenching performance. Ninety minutes without an intermission, and I was riveted in my seat for every minute. No matter what your experience with or attitude toward the Occupy movement, this show will place you inside the phenomenon, and give you an understanding like nothing else could.
Compiled from interviews and live recordings during the occupation of Dewey Square in the Fall of 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.
