Westport Playhouse - “Broken Glass"

10/06/2015 to 10/31/2015

25 Powers Court, Westport, CT Phone: 203-227-4177.

In celebration of longtime Connecticut resident Arthur Miller's one-hundredth birthday, the Playhouse is proud to present one of his most arresting and psychologically penetrating works, "Broken Glass," a powerful drama about New York Jews suffering from afar as they read accounts of atrocities in 1938 Nazi Germany as the winds of war begin to threaten Europe. Phillip Gellberg, a man driven by career and a desire to assimilate, has little time for his wife Sylvia, nor for the events of the world. But when Sylvia loses the use of her legs, Dr. Harry Hyman must determine the cause of her mysterious affliction. His discoveries begin to reveal a marriage fractured by guilt, intolerance, and personal tragedy, and incites a dangerous game of concealment and suspicion. The play explores what happens when the lines between what we believe and what is true, between our private fears and public fixations, begin to fade away. The final play of the season will be directed by Mark Lamos, and runs October 6 – 31. Tuesdays at 7 p.m., the performance schedule continues with Wednesday at 2 and 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 3 and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Special series feature Taste of Tuesday, Previews, LGBT Night OUT, Opening Night, Sunday Symposium, Open Captions, Thursday TalkBack, Together at the Table Family Dinner, Playhouse Young Professionals, and Backstage Pass.
