By Robert Ford

Donning her father’s old helmet, Amy is plunged into a world at war. The funny, harrowing, and deeply moving story of a Jewish kid from Chicago’s North Side who landed at Normandy on D-Day and fought through to the Battle of the Bulge. As Private Herzberg survives one near-death experience after another through luck, chutzpah, and sheer comic timing, his daughter chases down the one story that still haunts him.

This limited engagement production—newly revised, a decade after the play’s world premiere—commemorates the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II.


Single tickets for this production are not available until November 18.
