Photo Coverage: 'Speak Truth To Power: Voices Beyond The Dark' After Party
On May 3 at 7 pm, Kerry Kennedy and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, and The Public Theater (Artistic Director Oskar Eustis; Executive Director Andrew D. Hamingson) presented a one-night-only benefit reading of Ariel Dorfman's play SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER: Voices From Beyond The Dark, adapted from Kerry Kennedy's book of the same name. All proceeds from the reading benefited the relief efforts of Habitat for Humanity in Chile. BroadwayWorld was on hand to capture the evening's after-party arrivals.
The reading was directed by David Esbjornson and featured Elias Koteas, Alfred Molina, JuliAnne Moore, Viggo Mortensen, Aidan Quinn, Gloria Reuben, Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, and Debra Winger. All ticket holders were invited to a post-show reception featuring the cast and creative team.
Ariel Dorfman's haunting play, based on Kerry Kennedy's extraordinary book, chronicles the true-story accounts of heroic people withstanding horrific human rights abuses across the globe. Voicesfrom around the world cry out against violence and oppression - from world leaders like Desmond Tutu to the unknown activists working on the ground level. SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER is a powerful and moving testimony of the will of the human spirit to rise up against injustice, even in the face of incredible darkness.
