Bent by Martin Sherman
Black Box Theatre- Stevens Building- Northern Illinois University
Dekalb, IL
Share this event:

Bent by Martin Sherman is a collaboration project between MUSE Theatre Collective & Northern Illinois University's College of Visual & Performing Arts, The Graduate School, Gender/Sexuality Resource Center, School of Theatre & Dance, School of Music and School of Art & Design. The play brings awareness to the persecution of homosexuals during the Holocaust, as it follows one mans journey with being able to own his identity as a gay man during this terrible time. Bent is less about displaying a story of victimization but a story of strength. The play comments on love, tolerance and human dignity, as it explores true meaning of self, our responsibilities to others, and how we might handle impossible situations that put our existence at risk.
