A Bright Room Called Day

by Tony Kushner

Directed by Genevieve Bennett

About the Show

Tony Kushner’s A Bright Room Called Day is set in Weimar Germany as Hitler is rising to power. Agnes, a middle-aged, middle-class actress, who has never been interested in politics, witnesses the fall of the republic and rise of fascism with a growing sense of helplessness. The play is occasionally interrupted by Zillah, a woman from the Reagan Era battling her own sense of political paranoia.  A Bright Room Called Day is a resonant, brutal and poetic look at the temptation of complacency in the face of terror.
