A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY
Directed by Jed Allen Harris
April 12-14, 24-28
«This Age wanted heroes. It got us instead.»
Find yourself in Berlin, 1932 during the twilight months of the Weimar Republic. While fascist forces move to seize control of the government, a group of communists, artists and intellectuals gather to trade stories and drown their fears. Tony Kushner's poetic and incendiary play follows these women and men as they strive to preserve a world that is tearing apart. In «A Bright Room Called Day,» the demons of the past are the prophets of the future.
