Brooks to Host World Premiere of Light Falling Down


Oceanside CA-(Special Event)
Oceanside Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of ‘Light Falling Down’ by Aimee Greenberg  in October. This production will be directed by Christopher Williams, the Artistic Director of OTC.

Set against the backdrop of WWII in Poland (1942) and present day California, Ms. Greenberg’s play is a haunting and illuminating drama inspired in part by the true stories of female survivors of the Shoah, now living in Southern California. The story follows Alice who finds a young Jewish girl hiding underground in her garden. Alice is faced with the decision to either turn her in to the Nazis or to keep her hidden in the dark. But Alice has a secret, too. Intertwined is the story of Tuvia, her daughter Ava, and a neighbor in California today. LIGHT FALLING DOWN explores the nature of survival, the human spirit, and forgiveness.
“In Light Falling Down, Aimee Greenberg has written a moving and original piece of theatre” – David Elllenstein, Artistic Director of North Coast Repertory Theatre
