The premise of the play is that after Marx dies in 1883, he is able to see what's happening on earth for the next 100 years and comes back to talk about it. Imagine all Karl Marx would have to say after one hunred years of just being able to watch.

The single actor in this one-man show is Jerry Levy, who has been teaching sociology at Marlboro College and been acting with the Actors' Theater of Brattleboro since he moved there from Chicago in 1975. Originally directed by Michael Fox Kennedy of the Actors' Theater, Levy has been on the road with Zinn's version of Karl Marx for a year.
