About

An authentically Cincinnati story.
It’s 1941 in Cincinnati’s historic West End. Every day, the region grows as African Americans migrate from the Deep South and forge new lives in northern cities. At the same time, German residents face growing hostility as the U.S. teeters on the brink of World War II. Grace, who has fled the South and settled in the West End, houses people of both backgrounds in her row house. When a stranger arrives in the middle of the night in her backyard, Grace must confront the secrets of her past and the irrevocable ripples they have made on her present. An authentically Cincinnati story, this world premiere drama shines a light on a transformative chapter of our city’s history.
