Dan Bernitt: A Performance and Conversation

March 10, 2021 - 7:00 pm
  • Registration Required
Dan Bernitt Phi Alpha Gamma

Please join us for award-winning playwright Dan Bernitt’s Phi Alpha Gamma and a conversation with poet and Amherst College professor Shayla Lawson. The play, which Bernitt will be streaming from an immersive home theater space complete with lighting and sound, explores masculinity, homophobia, and men’s relationships in a college fraternity.
Using the structure of a Greek tragedy, the performance weaves together the voices of four fraternity brothers as they grapple with the remnants of a hate crime and their own fears. Pioneer Press calls it a “MUST-SEE SHOW ... Bernitt's savvy script offers few easy answers and plenty of twists that toy with the audience's sympathies.”
