After The Revolution
By Amy Herzog
After the Revolution is the story of the brilliant, promising Emma Joseph who proudly carries the torch of her family’s Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her grandfather, much revered for refusing to “name names” during the McCarthy hearings. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved. After the Revolution is a bold and moving portrait of an American family, thrown into an intergenerational tailspin, forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy. In including it as one of their Top Ten Plays of 2010, The New York Times said, “Ms. Herzog’s smart, engrossing play…strikes a fresh note in being set among a family of exotic beings.
