In 1934 Berlin, two lovers are thrown on a train to Dachau as part of the Gestapo's plan to cleanse the city of "perverts." One denies his lover at the hands of the guards, but while at the camp, he learns that true dignity lies in acknowledging who he is. Bent is an award-winning WWII drama written by Martin Sherman that tracks the persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany. The play is historically significant because, before Bent's first staging in London in 1979, there was little awareness of Nazi treatment of homosexuals. With its potent statement, the play has helped increase historical research of and education about their abuse. Learn More

Witty and surprisingly funny work, considering such a serious topic. The focus is on the experience of immigrants through language, loss and sacrifice. The actors did a great job and I was glad I did some research on North Korea beforehand. My spouse and I would see this again.
