A Bright Room Called Day

By Tony Kushner
Imprint: Theatre Communications Group
Paperback : 9781559360784, 200 pages, May 1994


From the author of Angels in AmericaA Bright Room Called Day was Kushner's first major play. Written against the backdrop of Reagan's America, it is a powerful portrayal of individual resolution in the face of political catastrophe.

The play follows a group of artists and political activists struggling to preserve themselves in 1930s Berlin as the Weimar Republic surrenders to the seduction of fascism. Often exquisitely lyrical, always exhilaratingly intelligent, the poetic world of the play moves beyond the bounds of historical reality with the morally outraged outpourings of a contemporary New York woman.


“It’s brash, audacious and...intoxicatingly visionary."

- Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune
