Acclaimed playwright Tony Kushner’s “A Bright Room Called Day” follows two temporally separate yet essentially linked narratives: the first, the story of a group of young artists and intellectuals living in Weimar Berlin, navigating politics, love, and issues of conscience as they contend with the rise of fascism in their country; and the second of Zillah, an eccentric American ex-pat living in Berlin after the fall of the Wall with her young East Berliner companion, Roland, as she draws striking comparison s between Hitler’s rise to power and the state of American politics at the time. This multi-media production seeks to explore the line between reality and fantasy, waking and nightmare, while remaining both politically urgent and emotionally resonant.
