About the Play

Lady Lay is a bold new play with music that will transport you to Berlin, 1989. It follows MariAnne, a frustrated, career clerk in the Berlin Employment Office. Then, one day, she hears Bob Dylan for the first time on the radio, and the Berlin Wall collapses. She takes a journey, both joyful and terrifying, into Dylan's rebellious realm. MariAnne sets off on a personal revolution through cold war fatigue, learning a new language, and falling in love with “that” song. Lady Lay asks: what is freedom? And can Dylan take us there? November 9, 2014 marked the 25th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Come celebrate our freedoms—and rock on.
