At the height of WW II, an unassuming young staffer to FDR discovers a Top Secret proposal to bomb the Concentration Camps dotting Eastern Europe. Whatever the outcome of the controversial debate, the perception of morality, accountability and assimilation will profoundly alter his family and the world around him. With insight, wit and a dash of 1940s panache, JACOB’S LADDER recounts a hero who’s not born but cornered as he wrestles with the idea that all evil needs to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
The production features an all-star cast of Austin talent including Babs George, Jenny Lavery, Zach Kleinsmith, Johanna Whitmore, Jay Fraley, and Tom Byrne.
JACOB’S LADDER was developed in part through the ScriptWorks Salon and is presented with the assistance of the ScriptWorks Finer Point Fund for New Play Production. The Thursday April 2nd performance will be a benefit for ScriptWorks to replenish the fund. Come see a great show and support ScriptWorks at the same time! All tickets are sliding scale and are available HERE.
