This War is Not Inevitable

In 1917 Rudolf Steiner’s Threefold Social Organism was an attempt to save a devastated Europe. 100 years later do we have a new chance?

Date: March 17, 2018
Presented By: Lightweight Theatre, in collaboration with Rudolf Steiner College, the Sacramento Faust Branch and the Christian Community
Schedule: Saturday, March 17, 2018; 7:30p-9:00p
Reservations: not required 
Event Fee: Event is Free – suggested donation $10

More than a Play, this Timely Event concerns the birth of and reaction to the Threefold Social Organism idea, 1917-1919  .  .  .  and what it can tell us about where we are 100 years later.


Reviews from a recent performance in Santa Cruz, CA: 

“A superb performance. The staging and the creativity of the two actors brought history to life. The ending was profound and moved me deeply.”    David Leighton, Camphill California
“Michael Burton’s play was a great success in Soquel – we, the audience, were gripped from start to finish; both Michael and Christian held us in the palms of their hands! It was excellent, and so many lines were applicable to our political situation today! In my view – an important piece of work and a MUST SEE, especially for the next generation – who are our hope to change and shape the future – for the better!!!”   Kirsten Ramsden, Carmel

Come see it March 17th

Everyone is Welcome – recommended for high school age and above.

Rudolf Steiner launched his idea in 1917 to help shorten the war and prevent another great conflagration from breaking out later.
The times were against him then and he was unsuccessful; the question now is: “Did Steiner’s attempt plant a seed that has waited 100 years to mature?”
