Watch on the Rhine
by: Lillian Hellman
Directed by: Cody Estle
In this inspirational play, Hellman presents a pre-World War II America with a call to action aimed directly at the heart of the family. What at first appears to be a charming drawing room comedy quickly turns to mystery and international intrigue. Family ties are tested, politics are questioned and one man steps out from safety to make the ultimate sacrifice. In Watch on the Rhine, Hellman challenges us to examine our own complacency in the face of world events, even when the atrocities occur an ocean away.
Watch on the Rhine was directed by Cody Estle and features Artistic Home artistic director Kathy Scambiatterra and ensemble member Kristin Collins. They were joined by guest artists Scot West, Tiffany Bedwell, Josh Volkers, John Stokvis, Lorraine Freund, Brandon Boler, Declan Collins, Elodie Tougne and Liam Dahlborn.
