    The Performing Arts Department invites you to see Aunt Dan and Lemon written by Wallace Shawn and directed by Annamarai Pileggi. Lemon has a notion that the Nazis were really quite “refreshing” because they were never hypocrites and she articulates her admiration for them with ease, humor and intelligence. Aunt Dan, a former Oxford don, reveres everything Henry Kissinger has ever done, defends the bombing of North Vietnam, and regales Lemon with deadly and salacious tales about her prostitute friend Mindy. “Simply put, this is a play about how literate, civilized societies can drift en masse into beastliness and commit the most obscene acts of history.” (Frank Rich, New York Times). Shawn’s play would have us hear what evil sounds like close up -- how funny, smart and lurid it can be.

      8 p.m. | Performing Arts Department presents Aunt Dan and Lemon, Edison Theatre, Mallinckrodt Center

    • Details:

      The Performing Arts Department invites you to see Aunt Dan and Lemon written by Wallace Shawn and directed by Annamarai Pileggi. Lemon has a notion that the Nazis were really quite “refreshing” because they were never hypocrites and she articulates her admiration for them with ease, humor and intelligence. Aunt Dan, a former Oxford don, reveres everything Henry Kissinger has ever done, defends the bombing of North Vietnam, and regales Lemon with deadly and salacious tales about her prostitute friend Mindy. “Simply put, this is a play about how literate, civilized societies can drift en masse into beastliness and commit the most obscene acts of history.” (Frank Rich, New York Times). Shawn’s play would have us hear what evil sounds like close up -- how funny, smart and lurid it can be.
