A Beat in Time explores a lifelong search for identity, and the life events that make us who we are. Set within the throes of the Beat Generation, a time of increased liberality following the Second World War, A Beat in Time traces the life of poet Allen Ginsberg from his beginnings to his end. Under the direction of Caltech Theater Head Brian Brophy, seven actors share the voice of Ginsberg, frequently playing both narrator and other characters. At some points they dictate the challenges of their generation, of being homosexual in an unforgiving sexually conservative world, of experimenting with drugs and travelling the world. To purchase tickets, go to https://caltech.brownpapertickets.com/ or pay what you can at the door.
