Wheaton Drama, Inc. is presenting Erich Maria Remarque and Peter Stone’s WWII drama, Full Circle. Set in 1945 Berlin, a young woman and an escaped prisoner discover that sometimes there are more important things than just surviving. When a Gestapo Captain begins to suspect who they really are, the struggles between identity, love and responsibility threaten to overtake them all.
On March 11, the Wheaton Drama Board of Directors approved a proposal to donate Full Circle patron intermission concession funds to the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center. Wheaton Drama, Inc. will match up to $250.
The themes in Full Circle powerfully connect with the Museum’s Mission Statement: “The Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Holocaust by honoring the memories of those who were lost and by teaching universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice and indifference. The museum fulfills its mission through the exhibition, preservation and interpretation of its collections and through education programs and initiatives that foster the promotion of human rights and the elimination of genocide.” (From http://www.ilholocaustmuseum.org/)
Full Circle opens March 15 and runs through April 7, 2013 (Thursdays-Sundays, no show March 31) at Playhouse 111. Tickets are $13-$16 and are available for purchase at this website, or by calling 630-260-1820.
