Performed by the Transversal Theatre Company at UC Irvine, the Romanian National Theatre of Cluj and the Sibiu (Romania) International Theatre Festival
May-June 2006

This production of a world premiere of a play by Bryan Reynolds received high acclaim in all three locales and a standing ovation at its final performance at the Sibiu Festival. The play treats a Jewish family in Germany during the Holocaust: While being transported to Auschwitz in a boxcar, the Jews have their passports stolen by a Nazi family seeking to emigrate, under alias of Jewish names, to America; sixty years later, an American family twice-descended from the Nazi one celebrates the Fourth of July in New York. All three families (mother, father, son and daughter in each case) are played by the same four actors, without costume or setting changes.
