About this show

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 loved ones of the days of living, now lost forever. This classic American anti-war drama was first produced in 1936. Transport Group's production represents the first major New York City revival. Written by Irwin Shaw. Lucille Lortel winner Joe Calarco directs. The Gala Opening Night performance of Bury the Dead includes a post-show reception with the cast and production team and a tax-deductible donation to Transport Group. Your ticket purchase includes a $55.00 tax-deductible donation to Transport Group. There will be no late seating -- please note the 7:00pm start time.
