Eyes on World Cultures
"Don't miss this play....
timely...exquisitely directed... tense enough to cause that
heart-in-the-throat feeling."

-Brenda Repland


Theatermania
"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."
-Zachary Stewart


Shadow of Heroes

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.
