Bent by Martin Sherman
Bent, by revered playwright Martin Sherman, directed by Chelsea Taylor, highlights an often forgotten element of the Holocaustthe persecution of homosexuals. "After watching a documentary about the Westboro Baptist Church, I noticed the use of pink triangles in their posters to protest against certain celebrities. I knew what it meant because of Sherman's play, and I felt that everyone should know that this symbol is still being used to try to oppress peopleand how horrible that is" said Director Chelsea Taylor. The play is the final production of Proxy's first six-show season, and promises to have great impact on the audience:  "Bent is a play that's both horrifying and illuminating. It's about the worst that man can do and the very best. How often do you get a story of that magnitude?" said Artistic Director Aaron Aguilar.

about the performance
Bent by Martin Sherman premiered in The Royal Court Theatre in London in 1979. "In 1934 Berlin on the eve of the Nazi incursion, two soldiers burst into the apartment of Max and his lover, Rudy, and slit their guest's throat, beginning a nightmare odyssey through Nazi Germany. Ranked lower on the human scale than Jews, the men, as avowed homosexuals, flee" (Samuel French). The play darts from a seedy club to a forest encampment to a concentration camp as the men struggle to stay alive and keep their humanity in one of the darkest hours of human history.  With touches of cabaret, non-realism and heartbreaking tragedy, Bent continues to captivate audiences since its inception, despite the measure of time and distance between 1934 Germany and 2012 San Antonio.
