Bury the Dead, an anti-war play by Irwin Shaw, opens at a military burial. As the priest and the rabbi arrive to say prayers for the dead, a groan is heard from the newly dug graves. Slowly the newly deceased soldiers rise up, pleading not to be buried and asking to rejoin the living. Word of their insurrection spreads quickly to the living soldiers and the military brass, who use a variety of techniques to convince the dead soldiers to get back to their graves. There are no evening performances on Sundays, November 17 and 24. There are added performances on Monday, November 18 at 7:30pm and Saturday, November 23 at 2:00pm.
