Why Do You Stand There in the Rain?
By Scottish Playwright Peter Arnott
US Premiere
Cathy Thomas-Grant, Director
The year is 1932, and 25,000 unemployed World War I veterans occupy Washington, DC, to petition the government peacefully for promised relief. The response? Drive the veterans out with bayonets, bullets, poison gas, and fire! Featuring the music of Woody Guthrie and his contemporaries, Pepperdine students tell the story of the Bonus Army March: a national campaign for food, work, and justice--a true story for here and now, told in the words and songs of those who were there. Commissioned by Pepperdine University and first presented in its world premiere by Pepperdine students at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in summer 2012.
Tuesday, April 2-Saturday, April 6, 7:30 p.m.
