Synopsis: 

In Amy Herzog's After the Revolution, the brilliant, promising Emma Joseph proudly carries the torch of her family's Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. 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.

    A Stain on Her Marxist Mantle

    Charles Isherwood

    November 10, 2010: Dramas of fractured families have become the Duane Reade drugstore of the New York theater, so plentiful that another story of squabbling over the dinner table cannot expect to offer much in the way of jolting surprises. But as its fiery title implies, “After the Revolution,” a fine and fiercely well-acted new play by Amy Herzog that opened Wednesday night at Playwrights Horizons’ Peter Jay Sharp Theater, has more on its mind than recycling familiar grievances for a couple of hours of entertainment.

    After the Revolution

    Erik Haagensen

    November 10, 2010: Amy Herzog's "After the Revolution" sounds, from both its title and plot synopsis, like a political drama. But while politics are most definitely involved, at its heart it's a family story of generational conflict. And as delivered by a crackerjack cast under Carolyn Cantor's trim direction, it's a damn good one.

    Don't join this 'Revolution'

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    November 10, 2010: And the avalanche of political plays contin ues. But rather than focusing on the recent elections, or even the Reagan and Bush administrations, Amy Herzog's "After the Revolution" goes further back, looking at the imprint left by 1940s activism on the following generations.

    Windy ‘After the Revolution’ winds down

    Michael Sommers

    November 10, 2010: Capable actors, good direction, fine design and stretches of nice writing cannot disguise the inevitable realization that "After the Revolution" is a lot of fuss over not much of anything.

    After the Revolution

    Andy Propst

    November 11, 2010: A young woman attempts to make sense of her present and plan for the future all the while confronting the past in Amy Herzog's thoughtful After the Revolution, playing at Playwrights Horizons. The work shines in large part, because Carolyn Cantor's sensitively directed production is filled with a host of exceptional performances, which often mitigate some of the excesses in the piece's overly convenient plotting.
