MANIFESTING MRS. MARX
by Clara Francesca
directed by Timothy McCown Reynolds
Journey into the soul of a woman betrayed by her famed husband, philosopher Karl Marx. Manifesting Mrs. Marx is a biographical non-biography. Jenny Marx is subverting the telling of the story of Jenny Marx by another, to tell the story of Jenny Marx, herself. It is about a woman trapped inside history books. It is an homage to all peoples trapped inside their bodies, trapped inside the delusion of what society tells them their limitations must be, trapped inside the body of a man, trapped inside the body of who she once was: ostentatious stratification. We witness the character's birth and destruction, endured through the psychosis of her trauma and times.
