A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Tony Kushner's A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of friends gathered in the Berlin apartment of Agnes Eggling as they collectively navigate the Weimar Republic's dissolution and Nazi party's meteoric rise between January 1933-October 1934. The Berlin timescape is periodically interrupted by Zillah, an American woman living in Reagan-era New York with a mounting sense of political dread. Invulnerable Nothings presented A Bright Room Called Day through special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd. and The Gersh Agency in site specific apartment settings throughout South West England. The production featured the work of American, British, and German collaborators animated by the text in a post Brexit, post Trump context.
A Bright Room Called Day was directed by C.C. Kellogg. Lighting design was by Alexander Latham, with sound design by Gates Torrey. Costume design was by Emma Wollenskey, with an environmental set from Emma Wollenskey, C.C. Kellogg, and the ensemble. The cast featured Jaclyn Bethany, Geraldine Brennan, Anna Christian, Katherine Hipkiss, Daniel Lewis-Jones, Ryan Mellish, Aimee Pollock, Tamara Ritthaler, Derekk Ross, and Charlotte Turner-McMullan.
