Propaganda for the Converted PR

IT IS GOOD TO USE THE WORD AS A WEAPON
nimbus brings the Revolution and the Resurrection to the Minneapolis Theater Garage.

October 14, 2005

Seeing that workers are on the verge of revolution, two agitators enter a foreign country to sow the seeds of dissent. Caught in the center of the rebellion is a young woman torn between faithfulness to her cause and compassion for her people. This is Propaganda for the Converted, a challenging and provocative original play written by Philadelphia poet and playwright David Spolum and presented by nimbus. Propaganda for the Converted is a collision orchestrated from Bertolt Brecht's The Measures Taken and T.S. Eliot's The Rock: A Pageant Play. The result is a uniquely engaging tragedy that examines the role of the individual within society and the subjugation of personal desire to powerful ideologies. As the play’s disparate worlds collide, the audience must come to terms with their own beliefs about the action on stage and the world beyond it. Propaganda for the Converted will be presented October 28 – November 20 at the Minneapolis Theater Garage, 2000 Lyndale Ave S, in Minneapolis. Performances run Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm.
