One-Way productions, an award-winning theater company, will present a new play based on the best-selling book “The Hiding Place.” Performances will take place the weekend of June 13 at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis.
The play is set in World War II-era Holland, as Corrie ten Boom and her family of watchmakers are secretly sheltering Jewish refugees in their small home. With courage and conviction, they defy the Nazis until they are discovered and arrested, sacrificing their freedom as a testament to their loyalty and love of the Jewish people.
This gripping drama is a true story that follows Corrie (Talia Vlaovich) and her sister Betsie (Krista Mackin) as they conquer the horror of a concentration camp through love and faith.
The play is written and directed by Ingrid Laurentiis-Wilson, a John McGrath theater arts scholarship recipient and SARTA Elly Award-winning playwright, based on the book by Corrie ten Boom and Elizabeth and John Sherrill.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday, June 13-16, and at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 15-16. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at www.1wayproductions.org. Discount group tickets are available. Due to the mature theme, this play is not recommended for children under 11.
