On the darkest day in history, a glimmer of hope sparks between two strangers, and thus begins A Special Day.
On May 8, 1938, Hitler arrives in Rome to meet with Mussolini. While Italy celebrates the rise of Fascism, an over-worked housewife and a mysterious bachelor meet by chance. Based on Ettore Scola’s 1977 Oscar-winning Italian film Una Giornata Particolare, Award-winning artists Ana Graham and Antonio Vega tell this epic story using minimalistic elements that celebrate the powerful imagination of the theater.
In today’s world, couldn’t we all use
