    It’s a cold January in 1941 at a clinic for disabled children in Nazi Germany. But now, instead of helping them, the doctor is sending them off to their deaths. Much respected Bishop von Galen visits to challenge the state-supported program of murder with unpredictable results. Based on a real figure who successfully protested against the appalling policy of eugenics, this play asks profound questions about how we should value all people, whatever their disabilities or limitations.

The ramifications of this act are still being felt today. As retold for the first time within a creative, nonfictional genre by Emmett’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, the play chronicles this tragedy, its aftermath, and Mamie’s heroic crusade for justice.

Romance rules the day in this story of his classic love triangle with the exquisite Roxane and the handsome and earnest, but verbally challenged, Christian. Learn More
