A quick show of hands at this week’s Q&A at the Park Theatre confirmed my suspicion: most people, even left-leaning people, have not heard of Howard Zinn. Like those in the audience, before this show, I counted myself amongst them. So by that measure alone, Bianca Bagatourian’s The Time Of Our Lies is a success.
In Ché Walker’s dynamic, scarlet splashed, viscerally staged production, The Time of Our Lies is nothing if not a battle cry against those who govern the USA and its militaristic and foreign policies.
Bianca Bagatourian’s script adapts the life and work of Howard Zinn (who passed away in 2010) into this 65-minute long play.
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will chair two events at the London premiere of The Time Of Our Lies at the Park Theatre. How much do you know about Howard Zinn? You should know more!

Shanley’s script doesn’t specify Flynn’s guilt or innocence, of course. And much of the power of this Pulitzer Prize-winning piece is its ability to keep you wondering – and arguing about it. I was interested to learn that that extends beyond audience reactions too.
John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt is being revived at the Southwark Playhouse in a limited season running to 30 September 2017. Here is what critics have been saying about the production directed by Ché Walker…
Doubt is a painful path to follow, even more so when it comes to religious belief. Shanley’s parable of doubt, first seen in 2005 and in Britain two years later, then carried under-currents in the US to do with George Bush’s second tenure of office. How much more so now would it resonate in the USA with today’s crusaders of certainty?
