Part of the Lillian Hellman Festival
Watch on the Rhine
February 3 – March 5, 2017
By Lillian Hellman
Directed by Jackie Maxwell
Starring Golden Globe winner Marsha Mason
Four-time Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Marsha Mason (The Goodbye Girl) leads an ensemble cast as Fanny Farrelly in Lillian Hellman's suspenseful masterpiece Watch on the Rhine. With America on the brink of entering World War II, Fanny's daughter escapes to the D.C. suburbs with her German husband, a man deeply involved in anti-fascist movements. But with an Eastern European guest with ulterior motives also living in their midst, tensions rise as it becomes clear that no one's safety can be guaranteed — at home or abroad.
Watch on the Rhine is generously sponsored by Margot Kelly, Decker Anstrom and Sherry Hiemstra and the David Bruce Smith Foundation.
