Rosa Red

By Laura Christina Dunn with excerpts from the writing of Rosa Luxemburg
Music by Laura Christina Dunn with Monica and Ron Metzler


From the creators of Frankenstein: A Cabaret, The Broken Planetarium presents a staged reading of their new musical based on the letters the revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg wrote from prison the year before she was murdered. The play juxtaposes the lives of two women: the revolutionary Luxemburg and the recipient of her letters, Sophie Liebknecht, a housewife and mother. Through the playful banter of these two characters, original folk music, and playwright Laura Christina Dunn’s lyric treatment of Luxemburg’s life story, the play examines the two women’s vastly different scopes of life yet deep friendship, asking the question, how do we remain connected in a world that we want so much to change?

Directed by Laura Christina Dunn
Music Director: Kyle Huth
