Really took many old-time CW people back half a century! Except that Maryhouse was still the music school, and St. Joseph House was on Chrystie Street, and Kojak had not yet started using the 9th Precinct, etc. etc. (I think my sharpest memory of those years was going to see the Beatles.) Dorothy Day would have been proud of this earnest cast and their probing examination of activism and war and how American society was being torn apart. Now for a look at what is happening today, please come to hear people from NYC Extinction Rebellion on Friday, June 14th at Maryhouse, 7:45 pm.
