      The Journey from the Jungle to “The Swamp”: A Conversation Inspired by Campaigns, Inc.

      FREE and one-night-only, live on YouTube

      Set in 1934, Campaigns, Inc. follows The Jungle novelist Upton Sinclair as he is challenged in his bid to be the first Democratic governor of California, exposing a timely true story about the power that persuasion, deceit, and perception hold in the U.S. electoral system. This live virtual event will feature scenes from the play performed by members of the cast, plus a conversation moderated by TimeLine Company Member Anish Jethmalani with playwright Will Allan, dramaturg Maren Robinson, and other special guests exploring a notable early example of “fake news” and how we got from there to today’s political climate.
