An homage to Our town, this world premiere invites audiences to suburban Illinois in 1977, when the Nazis threatened to march on Skokie. As two families prepare for Christmas and Hanukkah, two teenagers fall into an interfaith romance, and find themselves absorbed in a growing menace that turns to heartbreak, headlines, and then, magically, new hope, in this whimsical, innovative update of an American classic.

From the author of The Stick Wife and adapter of O Pioneers
