Recurring Event Event Series: Bury the Dead

Bury the Dead

November 25, 2022 @ 7:30 pm

$24 – $28

The Upstart Crow presents Bury the Dead by Irwin Shaw, an anti-war play written in 1936, when World War II was looking inevitable. It is set in “the second year of the war that is to begin tomorrow night.” Six soldiers who have been killed in battle stand up in the grave that has been dug for them, refusing to be buried. This presents a crisis for the Generals, who attempt to prevent word of their actions from spreading while trying various means to persuade the corpses to lie down and be buried. The play is satirical in places and quite moving in others, as the dead give their reasons for wanting to stay on the earth, celebrating the small joys and beauties of life in spite of the suffering and injustice the world holds.
