THE ROSES IN JUNE
Ingrid and George Rose have successfully rebuilt their lives in Britain after fleeing Nazi Germany but, when their 15-year-old son Paul is a victim of bullying and anti-Semitism at school, the trauma of their own persecution reemerges with almost deadly consequences. The Roses in June, set in swinging London on the eve of Israel’s 1967 Six-Day War, explores the struggle of love, fear, regret and forgiveness on the eve of a possible second Holocaust and against the burdens of prejudice, traumatic memory and the complex attitude of the English towards the Jews as the school attempts, at all costs, to avoid any scandal.
Wed and Thurs, June 14 & 15 at 8:00pm. Includes post-performance talk-backs.
