Baltimore Center Stage: After the Revolution
After the Revolution
March 18–May 17
  • By Amy Herzog
  • Directed by Lila Neugebauer

Emma Joseph is young, ambitious, talented, and about to put the ideals of her politically leftist, New York family into action. But a long-buried secret about her much-loved blacklisted grandfather threatens her work and throws her principles—and loyalties—into question. As the family, including grandmother Vera, wrestle with their legacy, Emma must chart her own course forward. 


The Amy Herzog Festival: 4000 Miles and After the Revolution

Center Stage introduces Baltimore to playwright Amy Herzog, one of the most exciting voices in American theater, through two of her hit plays—staged in repertory for the first time ever. Featuring three generations of one New York family, After the Revolution and 4000 Miles are gripping and surprising examinations of the unending power of family to shape our identities and our lives.
