Antebellum Opens this Weekend at Cleveland Public Theatre

Antebellum – Opening Night February 24! (Preview Thursday February 23)

Written by Robert O’Hara
Directed by Beth Wood
February 23 – March 10, 2012

Antebellum unfolds against the backdrops of a southern American plantation, a German concentration camp, the world premiere of Gone With The Wind and 1930s Berlin cabarets. Two stories merge as a love affair between two men, one Jewish and the other African-American, bridges time, space and gender. Through juxtaposed realities of Nazi cruelty and Hollywood dreams, this sweeping romance challenges intolerance of race and religion and discrimination on both sides of the Atlantic.

Antebellum is an intense exploration of discrimination written by nationally-recognized playwright Robert O’Hara and directed by CPT Associate Artistic Director Beth Wood.
