Bent in Berlin

The persecution of gays in Nazi Germany. On October 23–27, Pace Performing Arts will present Bent.

1934. Germany. Most know about the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany, but few know the story of “the other indesirables” who were beaten and killed alongside them in the concentration camps.

Martin Sherman’s Bent follows Max, a gay man who tries to flee to Holland with his boyfriend Rudy, but is found by the Gestapo and sent on a train to a concentration camp. When Rudy calls out for him, Max chooses his life over love. But at the camp, when Max meets Horst, his life changes.

Pace Performing Arts students take on this story about the courage to love. Performances will be held in NYC’s Schaeberle Studio on:

October 23–25, 8:00 p.m.
October 26, 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
October 27, 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Tickets are $6 for students and $12 for adults and can be purchased through BrownPaperTickets.
