“In the dark times

Will there also be singing?

Yes, there will also be singing

About the dark times.“

Bertolt Brecht 1939

Singing in the face of fear is an act of courage and hope. As we emerge from the pandemic, we enter phase one of our reopening with an evening of plays that touch our hearts with delightful comedy and the unity of song!
