Fully-Produced Student Production in the Bentley!


by Paula Vogel

Baltimore Waltz follows siblings Anna and Carl on their hilarious and heart-wrenching romp around Europe. Written in 1989, a year after playwright Paula Vogel lost her brother to AIDS, Vogel satirizes the disease and imagines a trip with her brother that never got to happen. Grief is offset with comedy, and the result is a surrealist, sultry show that grapples with illness, loss, and love.

Don Juan Comes Back From the War

Translation by Christopher Hampton of Ödön von Horváth’s 1936 drama

Take a journey through a blasted, post-apocalyptic landscape with one of history’s most notorious lovers as he searches for his lost love...but encounters a new kind of woman! A darkly comic classic, Don Juan Comes Back from the War is a timeless tale of epic tragedy and scintillating humor.
