by Richard Kalinoski, directed by Bruce Browne
October 17, 18, 19, 2014 (Fri.-Sun.)Aram and his young mail-order bride Seta are Armenians living in Milwaukee in the 1920s. Both are survivors of the killings and mass deportations that took place in the Ottoman Empire while World War I raged in Europe. The scars they bearóboth psychic and physical--must be healed, or at least acknowledged, before true union can be achieved. With deep humanity, gentle humor and unexpected twists, this award-winning play ultimately offers hope, and the promise of redemption.
