POTSDAM -- The fall main stage production from SUNY Potsdam's Department of Theatre and Dance will tell an untold story of the Nazi persecution of homosexuals during World War II. "Bent," the 1979 play by Martin Sherman, will be presented from Oct. 24 to Oct. 27 in the Black Box Theater, located in Satterlee Hall.
The title of the play came from a European slang term referring to homosexuals. "Bent" originally premiered on Broadway, and depicts how love can grow even in the face of unimaginable hardship and persecution.
The production includes performances at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24 to Oct. 26. There will be matinee performances at 2 p.m. Oct. 26 and Oct. 27.
The play contains adult content and situations. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for SUNY Potsdam students with ID.
Tickets are available at the Community Performance Series Box Office, in the lobby of the Sara M. Snell Music Theater or by calling 267-2277.
