Winner! 1984 Drama Logue Critics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Theatre.

This haunting, unusual play was created with members of the Illusion Theatre of Minneapolis, using their real life stories and those of their families to create a richly textured portrait of small town America from 1911 to the present. The play follows five families through three generations.

This is a challenging play that will push your actor's skills. They play multiple roles, and use several dialects. It is excellent for cross-curricular work with the social studies department as it deals with American families from 1911-1970's.
The fluidly shifting scenes call for creativity in set, props and costumes.
Lastly, it is an ideal way to use scripted theatre to build a sense of connection and shared humanity among the cast, crew, and your theatre community.
