Play: A Bright Room Called Day

A Bright Room Called Day
by Tony Kushner

 “This age wanted heroes. It got us instead.”
Berlin. 1932. A group of young communists throw a decadent party to celebrate the coming New Year. But as the country succumbs to the seduction of Nazism the friends 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.

Brash, audacious, intoxicatingly visionary."  - Chicago Tribune

Post-show talk on Tuesday 29th July
Professor Christopher Dillon of Kings College London will be giving a post-show on the historical context of the play. His talk is entitled ‘Perched on the Brink: the Rise and Demise of the Communist part in Weimar Germany.’ The talk will be free to all ticket-holders.

23 July – 16 August
