Give Us Bread

If I were anywhere near New York City next weekend, I’d be going to Give Us Bread, a reading of a play about the 1917 Food riots. The crew who put it together, the Anthropologists, have a splendid research blog on which they’ve been collecting materials about the riots. On it, you’ll find everything from the City’s response to the riots (eat rice!) to a racial classification of NYC push-cart vendors. If the research for the project is so surprising, challenging and entertaining, it can only speak well for the reading of their production. And, if any of y’all end up there, please do share your thoughts!
