Eyes on World Cultures
"Don't miss this play....timely...exquisitely directed... tense enough to cause that heart-in-the-throat feeling."
- Brenda Repland
"A heroic revival.... this isn't just the stale 'relevant' theater of yesteryear, but a devastating record of the kind of cruelty and courage that echoes throughout human history."
"well-wrought....a gripping and sad tale"
- Nicole Colbert
"Superb acting....The drama of power politics, party loyalty and sycophancy, and betrayal resonates loudly."
- Beate Hein Bennett

Shadow of Heroes
by Robert Ardrey
November 9 - December 9, 2018
How fragile is a dream?
Three friends and lovers in Budapest struggle to find freedom, from the liberation from the Nazis in 1945
to its invasion by the Soviet army in 1956.
A story of devoted idealists fighting for their beliefs in the face of political opportunism, temptation, and betrayal,
A chilling insight into the fragility of decency and conviction
in the face of authoritarian power.
