The Public Theater and Onassis USA Present

Democracy Is Coming

Shiva Theater

Sunday, April 14 at 6pm

Running time: 60 minutes

Democracy Is Coming is part of the Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming, co-presented by The Public Theater and Onassis USA.

Historically, democracy has made violent entrances into society — from ancient Greece to the American revolution to the Arab Spring. But has any people ever truly formed an ideal democracy? Or have we faltered — are we faltering now — on the steps of tyranny? Plato wrote that “the excessive increase of anything often causes a reaction in the opposite direction.” If that’s true, this current rise of authoritarian regimes might be a sign that democracy has a less obvious foothold in our society than we’d like to believe. Democracy Is Coming asks the question: if true democracy arrived tomorrow, would we even want to let it in?
