Two One-Act Plays About Comics & Superheroes @ The Soho Gallery for Digital Art, NYC

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Start Time: 07:00PM    End Time: 09:00PM

"Last Days of The Brave and the Bold"
A One-Act Play
Words by Stephen Garcia. Actions by Michael LoPorto
Larry Greenbush as Fredric Wertham
Steven Weinblatt as William Moulton Marston
Produced by Edie Nugent

An imagined meeting between two titanic real-life figures in the history of comics! "Last Days of The Brave & Bold" presents what might have happened in a conversation between Wonder Woman's creator Dr. William Moulton Marston—possessed of two cohabiting wives, and a serious promoter of the benefits of BDSM—and Dr. Frederic Wertham—author of the 1954 book "Seduction of the Innocent," which claimed sex and violence were permeating comic books of the period and causing harm to the children who read them.

Plus: "A People's History of Super-Heroism."

A short play that shows how one man reacts to the pressure his super-heroic family puts on him to continue their legacy of crime-fighting rather than find his own path.

Danny Fingeroth and the Soho Gallery for Digital Art are pleased to announce THE COMIC BOOK ROUND TABLE, a series of five exciting comics-related events on five consecutive WEDNESDAY NIGHTS, APRIL 10-MAY 8.
