Synopsis

Sycamore Street is a peaceful street, yet there's an underlying excitement. Joseph Blake, a new man in the neighborhood, is not welcome. His neighbors have decided to force him out. There are a number of reasons why such things happen. In this case, it's because the man once served a brief term in prison. Also, though his daughter is a model student, the neighbors don't want their children to associate with her. They form a mob and plan to march on the Blake house. Only one man, Arthur Hayes, fights an inner battle. In a scene of tremendous power, Blake stands up to the crowd.

Customer Reviews

"A wonderful story of moral courage and compassion. Enough humor to break the tension and enough tension to keep the show moving."
Review by Paula Myers, WHS Theater, Waxahachie, Texas
"Ever timely story of prejudices and closed minds. Simply powerful. Tremendous emotional response to our show."
Review by Stephan Kiszely, Bailiwick Players, Elkhart Lake, Wis.
"This play was very moving. It gave us a way to explore the issue of prejudice and blind discrimination without making it about race. This was essential because of our school's lack of ethnic diversity."
Review by Angelo Carter, Philo High School, Philo, Ohio
