WE WILL NOT BE SILENT

A World Premiere by David Meyers
Directed by Ed Herendeen

Sophie Scholl, a German college student, led the only major act of civil disobedience during the Second World War. Sophie and her fellow students, members of a group called the White Rose, published underground anti-Nazi materials calling for the peaceful overthrow of Hitler. This timely and provocative play tells her story and explores the role that German citizens played in the rise of Hitler. This play examines the moral strength and courage that led a group of students to risk their lives for a righteous, dangerous cause.
