SYNOPSIS

By Martin Sherman

Martin Sherman’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play, Bent, is at once a powerful and provocative look at the persecution of homosexuals during the Holocaust and a heart-rending account of love, redemption, and self-acceptance.  Set in the wake of Hitler’s bloody political purge known as “the Night of the Long Knives,” Bent follow the horrific and transformative experiences of Max Berber, a homosexual man living in 1934 Berlin.  As the final vestiges of Weimar decadence are dismantled, Max, with his lover, Rudy, is chased by the Gestapo from pre-war life of excess to the forests of Cologne and later, to Dachau, where Max finds an inviolate space and a forbidden intimacy with fellow prisoner, Horst.
