About this show

A counter cultural landmark, which attracted the intervention of the Federal Government when the Living Theatre debuted it in 1963, The Brig is as much a mind-altering substance as anything that came out of the Sixties. This sly and brutal play, based on playwright Kenneth Brown's experiences in a Japanese Marine Corps prison, uses the tedium of military drills to probe the debilitating effects of authoritarianism. A massive hit in its 2007 New York revival, original cast member and KOAN member Tom Lillard and his extraordinarily committed cast make clear the psychological costs of discipline as it edges, inexorably, into sadism.
