Fear and Misery in the Third Reich by Bertolt Brecht

Tickets available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3117953

November 10th, 11th, 17th, and 18th at 7:00pm and November 12th and 19th at 2:00pm

The eighteen scenes of this play could be regarded as separate playlets covering the years from 1933 to just before Hitler's entry into Vienna. Each is preceded and linked by a short verse, forming a sort of kaleidoscope of life under the Nazi dictatorship. The whole forms a horrifying picture of darkest tyranny, but is lightened by the occasional gleams of defiance.

Veronica, already scarred by too many failed relationships, finds the world a frightening place. Skylab, an American space station that came crashing down to earth, in particular, haunts and enrages her. So, she has committed suicide and is now in what she expected to be heaven but is instead something called the Bardo (the netherworld in Tibetan Buddhism), and the forces there keep trying to make her reincarnate. So far she's thwarted these return visits to earth with a sort of "spiritual otherworldly emergency brake system" she seems to have, but when she is finally reincarnated, will she learn her lesson?
