From the show:

Sophie Scholl - The Final Days Based on the Oscar nominated movie of the same name, the play "Sophie Scholl - The Final Days" leads us through the last days of a group of German students who risk their lives fighting against Hitler in 1943, by printing and distributing leaflets against the nazi regime. From the distribution of their anti-regime flyers up to their trial four days later, we examine the courage and strength required to defend political and moral values. In this provocative play, we witness Sophie and her friends as they are confronted with the choice of saving their own lives or standing up for what they most believe in. World premiere of the English translation. What people are saying about this story "Very timely in today's political climate." "This story gets to the heart and inspired me to be more courageous in standing up for what's right." "It's a proclamation of the power of ideas, and a cautionary tale for our own moment in history."

Choppy script, Important, Inspiring, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if you'd like to see true heroism in the face of evil. Moving, fierce reminder to fight tyranny, to value freedom, to have integrity/honesty.

Don't see it if you require a perfect script. Short scenes (present/past) make story choppy. Barebones set. Stirring lines fr hist'l record. Sm (hot)theater

Important, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if Set during WWII, a story for our times. If you miss the tie in to our current climate, the last scene will catch you up. Such courage!

Don't see it if You you keep your head in the sand, do not like historical information, do not want to think.

One of the few

See it if Heroic story of a group of strong-minded German students who just wanted to end WW II for their country.

Don't see it if Small, airless theatre may make you feel claustrophobic as it did for me. Young actors who ‘show’ us how to feel instead of feeling it

Also themselves. Made me think, when you believe it, I’ll believe it. Play ... Read more Read less

Profound, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You want to learn about a little-known courageous group in Nazi Germany. You are interested in history.

Compelling, Absorbing

See it if you want insight into Christians who resisted Hitler's Nazis. Unfortunately, they were all executed.

Don't see it if The theater was too warm when I saw it (on a hot summer's day). Others have said not to see it if you like Trump. I saw no parallel to him

Also Although the topic is serious to the point of being sad, the productio... Read more Read less

Riveting, Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant, Profound

See it if freedom is important enough to keep you politically aware, you will relate strongly to this serious play. It is preaching to the choir.

Don't see it if you like Trump. The subject matter is so relevant as to be disturbing. This is not meant to be entertaining but an upsetting call to action.
