Shadow of Heroes
by Robert Ardrey
November 9 - December 9, 2018
In documentary theater style, Shadow of Heroes follows the intertwined lives of three people from the liberation of Hungary from the Nazis in 1945 to its invasion by the Soviet army in 1956. A story of devoted friends and lovers fighting for their ideals in the face of political opportunism, temptation, and betrayal, the 1958 play is a chilling insight into the fragility of decency and conviction in the face of authoritarian power.
