In the Jungle of Cities
May 4 - May 7, 2011
Bertolt Brecht, playwright. Steve Ginsburg, director. As Brecht explains in his prologue, “You are in Chicago in 1912. You are about to witness an inexplicable wrestling match between two men and observe the downfall of a family that has moved from the prairies to the jungle of the big city. Don’t worry your heads about the motives for the fight, concentrate on the stakes. Judge impartially the technique of the contenders, and keep your eyes fixed on the finish.” Presented by the BU College of Fine Arts.
