Socialist Worker

We The People play

Issue No. 2066

This new play is written by Eric Schlosser, the US-based historian and writer best known for Fast Food Nation, his exposé of the fast food industry.

It is set in 1787 and uses speeches, letters and documents from that time to recreate the Philadelphia Convention that hammered out the constitution of the newly independent US.

Charlotte Westenra directed the play. Her work includes Gladiator Games and Bloody Sunday: Scenes From The Saville Inquiry. It is showing as part of the Globe Theatre’s “Renaissance and Revolution” season.
