Paris, 1892. If you’re not rich, things looks bleak. Exploitation, starvation and disease are daily realities for many. Police crackdowns and political bombings tear the city apart. Out of this chaos emerges Emile Henry, a young anarchist preparing for his war against the State. But when he hears strange rumblings from the future, madness beckons…
Paul Case’s Dead White Anarchists is a Molotov cocktail of storytelling, theatre, radical history lesson, sci crime thriller and revolutionary psychedelic death trip. It is a reflection on a bloody past and a chaotic present, but always holding hope for tomorrow.
Written and performed by Paul Case
Directed by Emily Ingram
