“listen to your nightmares”

A Bright Room Called Day is the haunting story of a group of artists struggling to preserve themselves in 1930s Berlin as the Weimar Republic falls to its knees. The play transcends historical drama as we witness the outpourings of a contemporary New York woman who is morally outraged at the government, and what she sees as blatant fascist tendencies of the US Republican Party.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Tony Kushner’s eerily prophetic play has been called “brash”, “audacious” and “intoxicatingly visionary” and holds particular relevance to the pending presidential election.
