Chicago Shakespeare Theatre: The Book of Joseph
(312) 595-5600 (Use code WFMT).
Every family has its secrets. The Hollander family’s spanned three generations and two continents, from WWII Poland to present-day America, all locked in a suitcase in Joseph Hollander’s attic. When his son, Richard, uncovered the suitcase, he found more than just Swastika-stamped letters and legal documents—he found a family he never met, and a father’s legacy that was never mentioned. A family torn apart by war, fighting to escape and survive, an unplanned immigration and quest to stay in the U.S., and a tale of love lost and found, were all captured in letters uncovered a generation later, which became the book Every Day Lasts a Year. Now adapted into The Book of Joseph, by Karen Hartman.
Every Tuesday through Friday evening performance. Valid until February 17, 2017. Subject to availability. One pair of tickets per membership card. Offer not valid in conjunction with any other offers or on previously purchased tickets.
