Playwright Catherine Yu’s newest play The Day is Long to End will explore political unrest in Vienna before World War II in 1934 starting Thursday night at the University of Florida.

The play will have its premiere performance at the Black Box Theatre in UF’s McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and will continue with four additional performances Friday through Sunday.
