The play highlights a Jewish family's anxiety over Ballyhoo, the cotillion for Southern Jewish society, as tensions rise in Europe and Gone With the Wind premieres in Atlanta in 1939. Populated with delightful characters and brimming with witty lines, The Last Night of Ballyhoo by Alfred Uhry is a radiant mix of true-to-life comedy framed by the family's struggle with anti-Semitism and quest for assimilation and identity.
