World Premiere Kendeda Winner
Part of the Hertz Series

Recommended for ages 12+ due to some adult situations.

It is 1939, and Nazi Germany has introduced harsh race laws targeting Jews while taking over large swaths of Central Europe. Fearing the worst, a Jewish couple makes an extraordinary decision; to arrange for 50 European children to be given up by their parents and taken to safety in the United States. Each child must have an American family to house them when they arrive, but willing fosters are hard to find. As a last desperate measure, the couple endures a tense dinner party with estranged friends from a violent household in the hopes of finding a home for one more child. But after arriving in Europe, the couple must be sure that separating children from their loving homes is actually their best option. A suspenseful story inspired by true events that will leave audiences at the edge of their seats. Winner of the 2018 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwright Competition.

“Everyone at Actor’s Express is excited to welcome the Alliance to our home for Sheltered, next season’s Alliance/Kendeda Competition winner. It’s especially meaningful to me, as the Alliance Theatre is where I cut my teeth professionally. I was present at the beginning of the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, so to host the latest winner at my current artistic home is an absolute delight. AE has produced the premieres of two Alliance/Kendeda finalist plays (Love Jerry and Fair Use), and has commissioned Alliance/Kendeda alumni playwrights Mike Lew and Christina Quintana for special projects, so our relationship to the competition is very special to us.” —Freddie Ashley; Artistic Director, Actor's Express

We've officially hit summer here in Atlanta, and while temperatures are rising outside, we're staging the hottest dance party inside: The Dancing Granny. But with all there is to do this season, why should you grab the kids and come see the show?

A little known fact about the Alliance?
"We are the largest producing theatre in Georgia and if you break out our education department and its shows, that would be the second."

What is your hope for the future?
"For myself, I want to be happy. Motivation to succeed. For humanity, I wish for there to be more understanding, without disregard or hate."
