It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.
This episode features more material from “Occupy #S17,” a special cabaret the Civilians hosted at Joe’s Pub to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Mia Rovegno directed the evening, which featured performers Dan Domingues and Emily Rossell performing monologues based on interviews that Domingues and Kelly McCreary conducted with OWS protestors. The episode closes with Caitlin Montclare, Alex Nolan, Amanda Ruzza, and Liz Kelly performing “The Punk Prayer,” the song that led to three members of Pussy Riot serving terms in a Russian prison.
