The White Rose: We Defied Hitler

A co-production with UMKC Theatre

by David Meyers

Directed by Jeff Church

January 21 - February 9, 2020

Based on real events, a challenging new work that examines the role of ordinary people in extraordinary times.

This gripping and intriguing play tells the true story of Sophie Scholl, a German college student who led the only act of public resistance to the Nazis during the Second World War. The play contains little-known facts about Sophie, her brother Hans, and the civil disobedience of the White Rose movement in Nazi Germany. Scholl’s moral strength is tested while being interrogated for her crimes, leading her to question whether to save her own life or continue her righteous crusade.
