It is 1939, and Hitler's assault on Europe has begun. Though much of the world has turned its back on the Jews of Europe, Evelyn and Leonard Kirsch suspect that the menace is real. This ordinary American couple makes a bold decision that could save the lives of many Jewish children and change the course of history. But first, they must convince their estranged friends to help. What begins as a night of cocktails and conversation becomes a tense negotiation of politics, morality, and survival - and the stakes are life and death. A suspenseful story that will bring you to the edge of your seat. Featuring McLean Fletcher, Kimberly Gilbert, David Schlumpf, Alexander Strain and Erin Weaver.

"...Watching the play with the benefit of hindsight, Evelyn’s decision seems like an easy one. But in the world of the play, it’s not so clear. Roberta’s husband argues that Adolf Hitler is just another right-wing leader who will be constrained by the rest of Europe. Besides, Martin is short on money and coping with a troublesome teenager. He’s got plausible reasons for not becoming involved. Don’t we all?"
