Full Length Play


Celebrating faith and community, family and continuity, The Book of Ruth is a poignant tale of love between generations. Separated from the rest of their family, Hannah and her granddaughter, Ruth, sit imprisioned in a Nazi internment camp, struggling each day to care for each other, to avoid the transports East and to stave off starvation. Amidst the despair of war, the two struggle to preserve their humanity, their culture,and each other. While Hannah perpetuates herself by sharing her many treasured recipes with Ruth, Ruth finds solace in drawing elaborate pictures which transport them both far from the confines of their prison. Ruth is desperate to feed her starving grandmother, but Hannah is focused only on nourishing her granddaughter's soul. Deeply moving and ultimately uplifting, The Book of Ruth was a winner of the prestigious AT&T On Stage award. Unit set, flexible staging. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
