Nominee! 2006 Joseph Jefferson nomination as Best New Chicago Play of the Year

All Through the Night speaks directly with a warning for today. Set during and after the Third Reich, a stylistic, surrealistic play inspired by interviews with German Gentile women. The play sweeps from their teen years through adulthood during the Holocaust and beyond. The Nazi Regime impacts the women's lives as they struggle over work, religion, marriage and motherhood. Making overwhelmingly hard choices, they survive or succumb to Hitler's Reign and are changed forever.A sylistic, surrealistic play. Minimal set and minimal props. An unconventional timeframe that jumps a chronological order.

"A gem. Highly recommended. Remarkable. One of the finest new works shown on a Chicago stage in several years...seldom have I seen such a polished, smartly constructed work! Rich in drama and emotion...wonderfully written...SEE THIS SHOW!" - Chicagocritic.com
