Join Theater Emory on the battlefield
Theater Emory performs from Feb. 21 to March 2 “Bury the Dead,” Irwin Shaw’s first play, produced in 1936 when he was only 23 and set in “the second year of the war that is to begin tomorrow night.” Directed by Theater Emory Artistic Director Timothy McDonough, “Bury the Dead” follows six soldiers killed in battle who rise up from their graves and doggedly refuse to be buried. Word of their insurrection spreads rapidly to soldiers in the field, to hapless generals, and to the news media, with alarming effect — creating a national crisis that is at times wickedly funny.
