"A Bright Room Called Day"
of this review
If you go to see this play, stick around as the theme building in the first half clarifies and intensifies after intermission. The acting is mostly quite good, small flaws by acting students don't mar the overall impact; the directing, costuming and stage settings very good, and Kushner's script incorporates interesting dramatic devices to bring home the universality of the choices we each must make in life when faced with dilemmas of personal responsibility. Go see this play.
