    Intrigue, espionage and forbidden romance abound in this tale based on the true story of Ensign Jack Kennedy's romance with suspected Nazi agent and former Miss Denmark, Inga Arvad.

Based on declassified files that were held in secret for more than 50 years, this play is a fictional and farcical romp through this steamy footnote in American history. Learn More
