ABOUT

Berlin. 1932. A group of artists and communists throw a decadent party to celebrate the coming new year. But as the country succumbs to the seduction of Nazism they are forced to choose between integrity and survival.

 

 

Shocking and provocative, the play caused a sensation when it was first performed. From Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Tony Kushner, A Bright Room Called Day examines the darkest reaches of the human heart.
