A Bright Room Called Day

Overview

PLEASE NOTE: This production has been canceled. Please see our most recent COVID-19 update.

From the Pulitzer-winning playwright behind Angels in America comes a dramatic parable for our time. A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of artists and political activists struggling to preserve themselves in 1930s Berlin as the Weimar Republic surrenders to the seduction of fascism. Often exquisitely lyrical, always exhilaratingly intelligent, the poetic world of the play moves beyond the bounds of historical reality with the morally outraged outpourings of a contemporary New York woman. Her fury brings into stark relief the discomfiting similarities between then and now, and challenges us to remember that although evil may seem inevitable, it is never irresistible.
