Bury the DeadPenn Theatre Arts Program
November 18 – 21, 2015 · Bruce Montgomery Theatre · Penn Student Shows
The Theatre Arts Programs fall production, Bury the Dead, written by Irwin Shaw in 1936, is set, as he states in the script, in the second year of the war that is to begin tomorrow night. The scene is an unnamed battlefield somewhere in the world that also serves as the gravesite for six dead American soldiers. About to be interred, the six young soldiers stand up in their shared grave and plead not to be buried. This crisis is the focus of Shaws harrowing, deeply moving and provocative play, directed by Theatre Arts faculty member, Dr. James F. Schlatter. Can a war ever end if the dead wont be buried?
