Occupy Wall Street, Part III

This episode concludes our three-part series about Occupy Wall Street. The monologues you are about to hear were crafted from interviews conducted by our artists in Zuccotti Park with demonstrators about their reasons for protesting and what the early days of the movement were like. This episode features Emily Ackerman as Michele Kelley, an experienced activist; Billy Eugene Jones and Jordan Mahome as Omar Omes and Michael Curtis, two teamsters; and a group of young protesters played by Matt Dellapina, Kelly McCreary, Dan Domingues, and Matt Stadelmann. Michael Friedman then leads the cast in a sing-along of "Dump the Bosses Off Your Back" by John Brill, written in 1911.

What you are about to hear is from our live performance at Joe's Pub on October 28, which was featured in the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, The Faster Times, and New York Times.
