Tim Robbins’ (Mime Troupe-Inspired) Agitprop

Tim Robbins pours his anger into an anti-war play — just don’t call it political theater

“‘It became so blatantly clear that what was going on was attempted intimidation,’ says Robbins, having had time to reflect on the backlash and what he thinks motivates those who see his public role as ‘actor-vist’ as a dirty word. ‘The attacks are meant to make you feel isolated, to prevent others who feel in a similar way from speaking out against the war. My feeling is, when you allow intimidation to prevent you from expressing your opinions, then you might as well just give up your First Amendment rights.'”
