The Fifth Column, by Ernest Hemingway, is not the dramatization of a novel or story, but a drama written for the stage by the celebrated author. It centers on the private and political passions of Philip Rawlings, a counter-espionage agent, and his romance with Dorothy Bridges, a journalist. Against a backdrop of treachery and danger, Dorothy and Philip take solace in each other's arms.

The artistic team will include Vicki R. Davis (set design), Clint Ramos (costume design), Jeff Nellis (lighting design), Jane Shaw (sound design).
