Silent Partners is a play which examines the relationship between radical playwright Bertolt Brecht and his English-language translator, Eric Bentley. In a profound and compelling way, it measures the moral price people are willing to pay for greatness, or for closeness to it. DCtheatrereviews.com, in its first podcast ever, interviews Charles Marowitz, the playwright and director of Silent Partners. In a far-ranging, incisive and quite candid interview, Mr. Marowitz describes the origin of his play; his working relationship with Professor Bentley, and what it’s like to work with a small theater in Washington to DCTheatrereviews interviewer Tim Treanor.
Scena Theatre’s world premiere of Silent Partners runs until May 21st on the main stage of Warehouse Theater 1021 7th St NW in downtown Washington, DC Tickets are $25 to $30. To purchase online go to www.scenatheatre.org.
