Robert Cohen Theatre

1930s Berlin: a group of left-leaning friends struggle to understand the world around them as Hitler rises to power. While they claim to have lofty ideals, they do not actively resist. Meanwhile, these events are contrasted with a parallel presentation of events in America in the 1980s by a modern day activist who insists on taking action to fight repression and authoritarianism.

The Business of Politics/The Politics of Business

Money talks. In an age when politicians are carefully-crafted public figures bought and paid for by lobbyists, Super PACs, corporate dollars and—potentially—a foreign government, a failed reality-TV star holds the office of the most powerful leader in the free world. Unsupported promises are more powerful than provable facts, and the interests of the ruling class are carried on the backs of the voiceless many… this is the era of the business of politics/the politics of business: where dirty deals are done daily.
