Arts Event: Before/After

May 14, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

BeforeAfter coverPost-World War II tensions were instigated by the Cold War rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union and lasted for much of the second half of the 20th century. These tensions resulted in mutual suspicions, heightened tensions and a series of international incidents that brought the world’s superpowers, and the world, to the brink of disaster.

Before/After, the latest play by John Feffer, is a multimedia portrait of the transformation of East-Central Europe told by the people who made it happen. Through words, pictures, video, and music, it tells the story of the people who chipped away at the Iron Curtain, tore down the Berlin Wall in 1989, and tried to realize their hopes and dreams in the decades that followed. Drawn from interviews with people from the region, the reading will be performed by 12 actors. It is directed by Natalia Gleason.

The play is free but seating is limited. So get your tickets now.
