Red Summer

by Beaufield Berry
Show runs:

September 26th – October 20, 2019

World Premiere Production

In commemoration of the centenary of the Omaha race riots of 1919, BLUEBARN presents the world premiere of Beaufield Berry’s evocative account of our city’s past centered on the story of William Brown. Accused of a crime he couldn’t physically have committed, the infamous torture and lynching of this 40yr old factory worker is a stain on America’s heartland. Red Summer presents an unflinching depiction of a city on the brink of chaos and a compelling portrait of the black migrant experience, each grounded by a deeply affecting vision of Will’s life and relationships before he became a tragic headline.

History is not a burden on the memory but an illumination of the soul.

Hot Tickets

Because we know you don’t always know you want to see a show until you do. Because we’d hate for you to miss out because you didn’t think you could get tickets last minute. Because we want to make sure we provide as many low-cost opportunities to experience live theatre as possible.

BLUEBARN offers rush tickets for any unsold seat at every performance for only $20.

Hot Tickets are available in person at the box office on a first-come, first-serve basis starting 45 minutes before showtime. Limit of two tickets per person.

If you’re willing to take a bit of a risk, you could just find yourself seeing great theatre at a great price.

Hot Tickets are not available for the final weekend of any performance run. Exceptions are rare, but Hot Tickets may not be available for other certain VIP performances and special engagements. Tickets are subject to availability.  We regularly post about sold-out shows on Facebook, and also recommend checking in with the box office on Hot Tickets availability for a particular show (402)345-1576.
