WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Irwin Shaw's harrowing 1936 classic play Bury the Dead takes place during "the second year of the war that is to begin tomorrow night." While a military burial detail goes about its sad duties, the dead soldiers shockingly begin to rise up, pleading not to be buried. Word of their insurrection spreads rapidly: the dead will not yield so easily. In a series of touching scenes the dead men talk with their loved ones of the days of living, now lost forever. Lucille Lortel Award-Winner Joe Calarco (Shakespeare's R & J) will direct the first major New York City revival of Shaw's legendary anti-war play.
