Monday, we’re telling a thrilling story from World War II: a troupe of Norwegian actors resisting the Nazi occupation and risking their lives to keep a vile, anti-Semitic play from being staged. The Nazis were using it as a propaganda tool and forcing the National Theater to perform it – at gun point. Utah playwright Eric Samuelsen has dramatized the story of the actors who had to decide if they should take a stand. It’s called The Ice Front, and it’s the latest production of Plan-B Theatre Company.
Eric Samuelsen's The Ice Front opens Plan-B Theatre Company's 2017-2018 season. It runs November 9 - 19 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. For details and information, visit planbtheatre.org
