ABOUT THE IRON HEEL:
No, he's not just the dog story and survival-adventure writer of Call of the Wild and The Sea-Wolf. Jack London's The Iron Heel is the strongest articulation of London's emerging anti-capitalism and may have been the first dystopian-utopian science fiction novel.

Written in 1907, the novel predicted the first World War (though with a different outcome), and the merger of corporate power with authoritarian government seen in fascist governments in the 1930s and 1940s and today in the escalating concentration of power and wealth in our current corporate capitalism.

Much of it reads like it could be today, which is why a group of community artists, activists and organizers  the Iron Heel Theater Collective  have chosen to bring it to life using puppetry, painted picture-story cantastoria banners, readers theater and live music.
