WE LOOK TO OUR PAST TO INFORM OUR FUTURE…
JACOB’S LADDER is a play about the collision of patriotism and culture. With insight, wit and a dash of 1940’s panache, we watch a hero who’s not born but cornered.
Based on the true story of a controversial plan to bomb Nazi concentration camps during the height of WWII, a young Jewish staffer in the FDR White House must choose between standing up for himself, his people, and his principles, or letting politics make him culpable in a potentially horrific plan.
