From the sordid underground nightlife of 1930ís Berlin to the dusty rock pits of Dachau, Martin Shermanís play Bent exposes the grim reality of the queer Germanís tribulations after The Night of the Long Knives. After neíer-do-well Max and his lover Rudy mistakenly invite a German soldier home for a one-night stand, they must escape Berlin to avoid facing complicity. Following his capture, Max is befriended by Horst as they are transported toward imprisonment at Dachau. Tensions mount for Max and Horst behind the steel fences of the concentration camp as they attempt to adjust to their new existence. Martin Shermanís Tony nominated play offers a glimpse of hope and transcendence beyond the horrors of Nazi brutality.

The closest parking lot for attendees is Lot F. For more information on these locations and the RIT Campus, please visit the RIT Interactive Campus Map.
