Learn More About The White Roses During a Play Centering Around 1940s Germany
Based on real events, challenging new work that examines the role of ordinary people in extraordinary times is coming to The Coterie Theatre. Get ready to witness The White Rose: We Defied Hitler on Saturday, January 25th!
This gripping and intriguing play tells the true story of Sophie Scholl, a German college student who led an act of public resistance against the Nazis during the Second World War. The play contains little-known facts about Sophie, her brother Hans, and the civil disobedience of the White Rose movement in Nazi Germany. Scholl’s moral strength is tested while being interrogated for her crimes, leading her to question whether to save her own life or continue her righteous crusade.
