Performing Arts Department presents

Aunt Dan and Lemon

April 13, 2018 - April 22, 2018

A.E. Hotchner Studio Theatre

Written by Wallace Shawn

Directed by Annamaria Pileggi

April 13,14, 15, 20, 21 & 22
A.E. Hotchner Studio Theatre

Lemon has a notion that the Nazis were really quite “refreshing” because they were never hypocrites and she articulates her admiration for them with ease, humor and intelligence. Aunt Dan, a former Oxford don, reveres everything Henry Kissinger has ever done, defends the bombing of North Vietnam, and regales Lemon with deadly and salacious tales about her prostitute friend Mindy. “Simply put, this is a play about how literate, civilized societies can drift en masse into beastliness and commit the most obscene acts of history.” (Frank Rich, New York Times). Shawn’s play would have us hear what evil sounds like close up — how funny, smart and lurid it can be.
