We Live On

We Live OnThe Actors’ Gang Theater will debut We Live On, a new play based on Hard Times by Studs Terkel, on July 22nd. With additional text by Tim Robbins
and the cast and under Robbins’ direction, the live virtual production will be presented in three parts and will run through September 4th.

With music by Cameron Dye and David Robbins, this world premiere features 30 accounts of the Great Depression, including those of Dolores Huerta, Dorothy Day, and Cesar Chavez.

Fifty-one years ago, author and chronicler of the common man, Studs Terkel, interviewed businessmen, auto workers, farmers, hobos, striptease artists, repo men, seamstresses, and labor leaders and asked them what it was like to live through the Great Depression. Their words of survival have a direct link to the challenges faced worldwide during the COVID pan-demic.

We Live On, a live virtual production, will run from July 22nd through September 4th (previews July 22nd, 23rd and 24th press openings July 29th, 30th and 31st). Each part presents ten stories and stands as a complete experience. Audiences around the globe can also join online prere-corded screening every Sunday, between July 25th and September 5th, at 9 am (PT) for Part One, at 10:30 am (PT) for Part Two, at 12 pm (PT) for Part Three. This marks the first Actors’ Gang mainstage production since the theater closed its doors in March of 2020.
