The Story

The arresting drama of a young diplomat in 1943, who becomes aware of information known only at the highest levels of government, regarding what is truly happening in the European war. This fascinating and provocative play looks at diplomatic inaction, complex decisions and the forces in this country striving to make these facts public. The story is true and devastating.
