Conversation with Judith Malina, Julian Beck. The Living Theater Company performs two segments from their "Mysteries and Smaller Pieces": "The Brig Dollar" and "The Plague." The excerpts are introduced by founder-directors Julian Beck and Judith Malina, who discuss the goals of the work and the ideas of their group with arts critic Jack Kroll. The Living Theater was a well-known repertory company in the late 40s and through the 60s. For a time it had its own theater in New York City. Their work was radical, experimental, and confrontational, long before those characteristics were at all common or accepted by the theater public.
