    <span style="font-family: Georgia;">by Bertolt Brecht <br /> translated by Eric Bentley<br /> Theater in the Rough Staged Reading Directed by Steven Maler<br /> featuring Tony Shalhoub and Brook Adams<br /> <br /> </span> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Georgia;">Brecht&rsquo;s series of&nbsp;18 interconnected playlets describe what life was like in German households in the 1930s as the Nazis came to power. Written while Brecht was in exile in Denmark and first performed in Paris in 1938, these poignant stories dramatize the suspicion and anxiety experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as the power of Hitler grew.The reading features renowned film and theater actors Tony Shalhoub and Brooke Adams.<br /> </span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Georgia;"><strong>Tickets $40, $20; Senior (65 ) discount $4; <br /> Babson faculty/staff and non-Babson students $15; Babson students $5<br /> <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/977282">CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS $5-$40</a><br /> <span style="font-size: 10px;">ALL SALES ARE FINAL/NO REFUNDS</span><br /> <br /> Meet the Cast and support CSC! &nbsp;A limited number of tickets are available for a post-show reception with the cast. &nbsp;Tickets are $125 each and include priority seating for the performance. &nbsp;All proceeds benefit CSC's education and outreach programs.<br /> <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe.c/10199654">CLICK HERE FOR $125 TICKETS INCLUDING MEET AND GREET</a><br /> </strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Georgia;">Fear and Misery in the Third Reich&nbsp;is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.<br /> Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Georgia;">Theatre in the Rough is a script-in-hand reading series presented without common theatrical elements like sets or costumes. These pared-down readings uniquely engage the audience by immersing them in the immediacy of the text and the actors&rsquo; performances, allowing one&rsquo;s own imagination to take creative flight.<br /> </span></p>
