Allegiance tells the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the attack on Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but his sister, Kei, fiercely protests the government's treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they struggle between duty and defiance, custom and change, and family bonds and forbidden loves.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic by Eugene O'Neill is a surprisingly contemporary play that crackles with fierce physicality, humor, and drama. After a 20-year separation, a coal barge captain is reunited with the daughter he unknowingly abandoned to a life of hardship. When Anna falls in love with a shipwrecked sailor, her father and her suitor come to recognize their own culpability in her plight, and all three struggle in their own way for salvation.
Tyranny, demagoguery, and absolute power are disrupted in Jean Anouilh's modern adaptation of Antigone, written in 1940s France as a form of resistance against Nazi occupation. In an act of treason punishable by death, Antigone acts on her moral duty to bury her brother, defying the will of the ruthless King Creon. What transpires is a timeless exploration of when to accept authority in order to maintain the status quo and when to confront it, no matter the consequences.
At the end of World War Two, artist Han van Meegeren sits in a prison cell accused of selling a long-lost Vermeer to the Nazis, a crime tantamount to treason. Van Meegeren contends that the painting was a forgery, which he skillfully produced and aged with a special treatment of the plastic known as Bakelite. Now he must create another masterpiece in front of his jailer, art historian Geert Piller, to save his life. The Bakelite Masterpiece is a dynamic and compelling Boston-area premiere from playwright Kate Cayley.
Set in northern Uganda at the turn of the millennium, this poetic drama explores love and dedication amidst a background of an escalating civil war. In a secret wedding ceremony, a local teenage girl and the daughter of American missionaries solidify their union despite growing violence and assured intolerance. Cardboard Piano is a powerful new work that deftly examines the roots of hate and the capacity for forgiveness.
A New Orleans ghost story pulled from the real-life experiences of playwright Tennessee Williams. Set in a French Quarter boarding house in the 1930s, this rarely produced work from the enigmatic author is considered one of his most autobiographical. Begun early in his career and completed towards the end, Vieux Carré is quintessential Williams, a masterfully crafted epic filled with hauntingly evocative imagery and characters.
Risking everything to stand up for social justice, German college student Sophie Scholl courageously led the only major act of civil disobedience against Hitler and his fascist regime. Scholl's moral strength is tested while she is interrogated for her crimes, leading her to question whether to save her own life or continue her righteous crusade. Based on true events, We Will Not Be Silent is a provocative and timely new work that examines ordinary people in extraordinary times.
