Body of Bourne

Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 2:00pm

Irene and Alan Wurtzel Theater
67 North Main Street, Oberlin, Ohio 44074

Through dramatized scenes, letters, and essays, Body of Bourne presents the biography of renowned writer and World War I pacifist Randolph Bourne, whose short but meaningful life was forever affected by his physical disabilities.

From his timid childhood to his ascent as an impassioned social critic, Bourne's journey takes him around the world, overcoming physical obstacles through his intellect and his friends. As Bourne confronts many examples of prejudice throughout his lifetime, he remains a man firmly committed to progressive ideas and the vital need for society to understand the disabled.

Play by John Belluso; directed by Visiting Assistant Professor of Theater Jason Dorwart.
