The Time Of Our Lies at The Park Theatre

30 July 2019 to 10 August 2019Visit websiteBook tickets

Howard Zinn was an American historian, professor and social activist, widely considered one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century. His book, A People’s History of the United States, has sold two million copies and is read in schools throughout the U.S.
 
The Time Of Our Lies explores Zinn’s personal history, including being a soldier who dropped bombs on Royan, France in WWll. This fateful moment troubled him for the rest of his days and shaped the man who would become a moral compass for the United States in ways that are more relevant today than ever before.
 
This play features songs using some of Howard’s words, combined with first-person accounts of war from other soldiers, all juxtaposed against a backdrop of Butoh inspired movement.
 
The Edinburgh Fringe Festival run was co-produced by Viggo Mortensen and sponsored by Eddie Vedder, Tom Shadyac, Myla Kabat-Zinn, Tim Robbins and was nominated for the Amnesty International “Freedom of Expression” Award (2014). The London production is sponsored by Eddie Vedder, Susan Sarandon, Diane Lane and Myla Kabat-Zinn.
 
The Time Of Our Lies is a battle cry for democracy, transparency, and inclusion. The play embodies Zinn’s battle for social justice and his lifelong struggle against false historical narratives written by those in power that poison the well for true democracy.
