"7:30 P.M. WED.-SAT. 2 P.M. SUN."
"SIDNEY J. LEE AUDITORIUM."
"Like the lineage of any family, this is a story which evolves out of the struggle with circumstance, the caprices of fate, the power of memory and the resilience of faith. My ancestors were not heroes. However, some of their actions - the audacity to cross oceans and continents with nothing awaiting them but promises - I find heroic. My ancestors were not famous, they were common. They were, and in some cases still are, farmers. But, like millions of families seeking refuge, freedom of religion, land of their own - be they Irish, Italian, Jewish, Catholic, Cuban, Laotian, Russian, Polish, Hispanic, Haitian, the list goes on and on - these common people made an uncommon choice. This play is meant to celebrate that choice. - Steven Dietz."
