WATCH ON THE RHINE, by Lillian Hellman | Weathervane Playhouse | viernes, 22. mayo 2020

1940. Washington D.C. Well-to-do Fanny and David Farrelly are awaiting the arrival of their daughter and sister Sara, who has fled Germany with her three children and husband, a member of the Anti-**** Resistance. When another Farrelly houseguest discovers their identity, he threatens to expose them, setting off a series of events that will stretch and test everyone's loyalties. Published in 1941 by Lillian Hellman, a brilliant activist in her own right, this political thriller is a timely examination of moral obligation and sacrifice.
"Though not Hellman's most famous play, Watch on the Rhine is a thunderclap of a play that will have no trouble capturing the attention of a modern audience attuned to current events. What's particularly interesting about the play is that it's not a 'preaching to the choir' experience but rather one that wants people to stop talking and start acting." (TheaterMania)
