For two years and one month, Anne Frank and seven others hid in four small rooms concealed behind a bookcase in the building where her father worked. Her diary revealed their ordeal to the world. But what of the people who hid them, got them food, and kept them informed? This play explores the complex challenges faced by these brave individuals on their journey of rebellious morality during the horrors of the Holocaust.
>>> Bruce's pandemic project has been writing the book for a new musical called Prodigals featuring bluegrass and folk songs written by The Lubben Brothers. Watch this space for info on further developments!
In the summer of 1950, shared tragedy reunites an estranged West Virginia family against their will. As their secrets, lies, loves, and resentments are revealed, will the choices they make bring them closer together or tear them apart forever? Inspired by the story of the prodigal son, PRODIGALS explores the humanity behind our collective need for connection, forgiveness, belonging, and a place to call home.
