No Room for Wishing
June 20, 2012
Fort Point Theatre Channel was pleased to host Danny Bryck reading an excerpt from his new one-man play, No Room for Wishing. This was presented in conjunction with a reading of excerpts from Waiting for Gilgamesh, by Amir Al-Azraki, during an exhibition of work by Anne Loyer and others.
No Room for Wishing is a one-man documentary play about Occupy Boston written and performed by Bryck and directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian. Using only the exact words of the people involved in and affected by the movement, the show pieces together the voices and experiences of many diverse individuals into the larger story of what happened over the two months that Dewey Square was occupied.
Both personal and political, No Room for Wishing is an up-close look at the sociopolitical climate of contemporary America and the way it affects a broad spectrum of people. Probing the ways that we as a culture perceive and communicate with each other, it asks, “What happens when we try to reinvent society?”
