a world premiere by Eric Samuelsen
November 9-19, 2017
The actors of the Norwegian National Theatre find themselves in an uneasy truce with Nazi cultural authorities during the German occupation of Norway. When they are forced to perform a Nazi propaganda piece, conscience comes face-to-face with The Final Solution.
THE ICE FRONT questions what it means to be an artist, to be a patriot, to be human.
Featuring Kirt Bateman, Roger Dunbar, Ariana Farber, Stephanie Howell, Jay Perry, Topher Rasmussen, Robert Scott Smith, Emilie Starr, Christy Summerhays, Directed by Jerry Rapier.
Special thanks to dramaturg Greg Hatch.
