THERE IS BRIEF NUDITY AND VIOLENCE.
Obie Award-winning The Brig was first staged in 1963 by The Living Theatre in New York. The Brig is a fundamentally important experimental piece based on Brown’s experience of 30 hellacious days in a military prison for Marines. This poignant staging will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen, it’s a brutal, physically engaging and relentless piece of theater that will resonate long after you leave the theatre.
