About this show

Lillian Hellman began Watch on the Rhine in August 1939, during the weeks prior to the official onset of World War Two. The play debuted in 1941, eight months before the United States entered the war. In its depiction of a family that struggles to combat the rise of fascism, Watch on the Rhine emerges as a timely examination of moral obligation, sacrifice, and what it means to be American.
