Description

Little Brother — January 13, 2012 – January 22, 2012

World Premiere. Adapted from the bestselling novel by Cory Doctorow, Little Brother 17-year-old tech hacker Marcus is suddenly apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security for days of merciless interrogation on San Francisco’s Treasure Island. When no one besides his friends believes his story, he’s left with only one option: take down the system himself. Little Brother is a love letter to the Bay, a sweet teenage romance, and a frightening predictor of things to come.

A Bright Room Called Day — March 9, 2012 – March 21, 2012

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America comes a powerful portrayal of individuals confronted with political catastrophe. A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of artists and activists struggling for preservation in 1930s Berlin as Germany surrenders to the seduction of fascism. The play creates a stark counterpoint between then and now through the passionate outpourings of Zillah, a slightly paranoid and extremely passionate contemporary American woman, sifting through the past in Berlin. Kushner’s first play is a lyrical, savagely funny piece of theatre, as well as a warning in these troublesome times.
