Bent chronicles the challenges of and beauty in both finding and expressing love through the most extreme circumstances. This production is presented with support from Alpha Psi Omega, the National Theatre Honors Society, as well as the Elon Lumen Prize. Bent is the culmination of Jaclyn Kanter's undergraduate research project, which analyzes how Holocaust historiography and Antonin Artaud's theory of Theatre of Cruelty might be used to increase audience empathy by means of theatrical production. An optional survey will accompany the performance.
A donation of $5 per ticket is suggested to support Alpha Psi Omega. As Bent is a research project, the donation is not required to secure your seat. Donations will be accepted through Venmo and at the door.
