About the Show
Sept. 30 – Nov. 5, 2017
by Lillian Hellman, directed by Lisa Peterson.
In 1940 Fanny Farrelly is expecting the arrival of her daughter Sara, Sara’s German husband Kurt, and their children who have fled Europe due to Kurt’s role in the anti-Nazi resistance movement. When a Romanian houseguest who is a Nazi supporter discovers Kurt’s identity, he threatens to expose him. Published in 1941 by Hellman, a brilliant activist ahead of her time, this is a timely examination of moral obligation, sacrifice and what it means to be American.
