Enjoy this month’s play reading of “Watch on the Rhine.” Set in 1940, Fanny Farrelly is expecting the arrival of her daughter Sara, Sara’s German husband Kurt and their children who have fled Europe due to Kurt’s role in the anti-Nazi resistance movement. When a Romanian houseguest who is a Nazi supporter discovers Kurt’s identity, he threatens to expose him. Published in 1941 by Lillian Hellman, a brilliant activist who was ahead of her time, “Watch on the Rhine” is a timely examination of moral obligation, sacrifice and what it means to be American. Guthrie Dramaturg Jo Holcomb will assign parts.
