Should we bomb the LA Times?
Beyond Baroque Gallery, LA — 8PM on Sat, May 11
In 1910, labor union militants dynamited the LA Times building. Their lawyer, Clarence Darrow, saved the bombers from hanging.
On Saturday, May 11, Darrow will return from the dead to ask the question, “Is it time we bombed the LA Times again?”
Portrayed by investigative reporter Greg Palast, Darrow makes the case to the jury — the audience — who will, at the end of his argument, vote to light the dynamite or not.
Palast is co-author of this short verse play, “The LA Times Bomb,” along with members of California Poets for Resistance, Matt Sedillo (also director), Irene Sanchez, Lee Boek and Cary Harrison, bringing to life the characters of the time when LA was the epicenter of a bloody revolution for worker and racial rights.
