It is the height of the Red Scare. Brooklyn, 1953, Rose Wallach is a young lady with a lot of questions on her mind. Her parents are as fervently opposed to McCarthyism, anti-Semitism and exploitation of the working class as they are passionately committed to the Rosenbergs, civil rights and Stalin.

"But why?" wonders Rose, "Maybe I'm only a liberal." Seeking answers, Rose befriends an elderly painter on the Esplanade and occasionally flirts with a very obvious FBI agent who is asking questions about her uncle who is a Hollywood screenwriter.

It is a time in America when talking to the wrong person can land you in hot water. But how do you know who is good, or who is bad, and who decides that?

And that's certainly not going to change. So, in addition to ticket sales, we rely on public and private grants, sponsorships and individual donations from people like you. Even if it's $5 (no donation is too small) or $5000 (no donation is too large), your contribution will make a huge difference onstage at iTheatre.
