Fascism doesn’t show up in jackboots and swastikas. It arrives in the form of a polite older gentleman on Christmas Eve.
Schimmelpfennig's play about the failure of liberal intellectuals to confront the historic danger of extremism was written in 2015 in a German context, and it's universal relevance has only become more striking in 2017. Winter Solstice is a portrait of liberal impotence in the face of blind conviction. Will these well-meaning dedicated people take action when fascism is entertaining them in their living room?
Performances of Winter Solstice are February 16-March 11, 2018
Fri. & Sat. at 8:00, Thurs. March 1 & 8 at 8:00, Sun. March 4 & 11 at 3:00
