An homage to Our Town, this world-premiere invites audiences to suburban Illinois in 1977, when the Nazis marched on Skokie. As the Major and Edelman families prepare for Christmas and Hanukkah, Ricky and Thornton fall into an interfaith teenage romance. Off to embark on exciting futures both inside and out of their suburban hamlet, the teenagers find themselves absorbed in a growing menace that turns into heartbreak, surprise, and headlines involving the whole community.
From the author of The Stick Wife and adapter of O Pioneers.
The DCJCC is proud to recognize Our Suburb’s Producing Angels Natalie and Paul Abrams, Ann and Frank Gilbert, Nancy and Saul Pilchen, Patti and Jerry Sowalsky.
