About the Play
“We live in Berlin. It’s 1932. I feel relatively safe, ” says Agnes Eggling as she and her friends watch Adolf Hitler’s rise to power from the relative safety of her Berlin apartment. Meanwhile, Zillah, who lives in 2015, can’t help but notice some terrifying parallels with current day politics and Weimar Germany. Tony Kushner’s A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY is “unabashedly political, thought-provoking, a little scary, and frequently a good deal of theatrical fun.”
