“Bury the Dead,” a war play by Irwin Shaw

All performances begin at 7pm

The Theatre Arts Program’s fall production, “Bury the Dead,” written by Irwin Shaw in 1936, is set “in the second year of the war that is to begin tomorrow night.” The scene is an unnamed battlefield somewhere in the world that also serves as the gravesite for six dead American soldiers. About to be interred, the young soldiers stand up in their shared grave and plead not to be buried. This crisis is the focus of Shaw’s harrowing and deeply moving and provocative play, directed by Theatre Arts faculty member James F. Schlatter.
