Events

  1. Bowie Playhouse - "The Last Night of Ballyhoo"

    October 25, 2019, 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM @ Bowie Playhouse

    This play is set in the upper class German-Jewish community living in Atlanta, Georgia in December 1939. Hitler has recently conquered Poland and Adolph Freitag, his sister Boo, and sister-in-law Reba, along with nieces Lala and Sunny, a Jewish family so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor, are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish cotillion ball sponsored by their restrictive country club. Adolph's employee Joe Farkas is an attractive eligible bachelor and an Eastern Europe Jew, familiar with prejudice but unable to fathom its existence within his own religious community. His presence prompts college student Sunny to examine intra-ethnic bias, her Jewish identity (or lack thereof), and the beliefs with which she has been raised.
