Department of Theatre Arts & Dance- "A Bright Room Called Day"

This spring the Department of Theatre Arts & Dance is presenting Tony Kushner’s A Bright Room Called Day. The play follows the stories of Agnes Eggling, a middle-aged actress and Communist in pre-Nazi Berlin, and Zillah, a young woman frustrated with the governing parties of the early 1990's. Kushner's exploration of human nature in the face of social change makes A Bright Room Called Day a challenging engagement in theatre. This play touches on many issues prevalent in the two eras in which it is set, such as human rights, sexuality, gender roles, religion, and the abuse of government.

A Bright Room Called Day will open April 17th in Rarig Center on the West Bank. We hope your faculty would consider integrating it into their syllabi, either as a class event or extra credit opportunity. Group discounts are available and University of Minnesota students and faculty receive discounts on all of our productions throughout the school year.
