WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
By the author of Driving Miss Daisy, this Tony Award-winning play once again explores the lives of Jews in the American South. It is December of 1939. Gone With the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta's upper-crust Freitag family is much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, Atlanta's Jewish cotillion and the social event of the season. The ensuing comedy proves both hilarious and thought-provoking as it touches on themes of assimilation, anti-Semitism, and change.
