Freedom

A new American play, Freedom tells the story of a Holocaust survivor and an Irish immigrant who meet hours before their American naturalization ceremony. Freedom looks at the ways we yearn for freedom—the freedom to face the truth about ourselves with grace, acceptance, and forgiveness.

Freedom tells the story of a Holocaust survivor and an Irish immigrant who meet by chance in the hours before their American naturalization ceremony. Bearing deep wounds from the past and carrying secrets too painful to tell, they forge a connection and learn they have more similarities than differences. Based in part on survivor testimony, this new American play looks at the many ways we yearn for freedom—not just “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” but also the freedom to face the truth about ourselves with grace, acceptance, and forgiveness.
