What Rough Beast at Centaur Theatre

Event details

  • Thursday | March 2, 2023 to Saturday | March 11, 2023
  • All Day

What Rough Beast was selected for the Brave New Looks Series, and will be running at the Centaur Theatre from March 2-11 ! Co-produced by Theatre Ouest End and Tantalus, directed by Jessica Abdallah:

What Rough Beast begins as a controversial professor is invited to speak at a progressive college, kicking off a political firestorm and tearing the campus apart. As the factions form and the rhetoric flares, on the other side of the city a young man slouches down the rabbit hole of radicalization with devastating consequences. What Rough Beast engages with heated questions facing our increasingly polarized world: can compassion fight hatred? Can dialogue change a person’s mind? If not, how do we move forward?
