Germany in 1943. America in 2033. This charged, new Signature in the Schools play follows young adults separated by time and place, united by their resistance to the government oppression they’re surrounded by. In 2033, a group of protestors in hiding begin receiving cryptic text messages. Is it actually possible that they’re somehow from 1940’s anti-Nazi activist, Sophie Scholl, and other members of the famed White Rose resistance group? And if they are receiving those messages, why are they receiving them?

Featuring a cast and crew of Arlington Public Schools students and guest actor Tracy Lynn Olivera, this new play by Joe Calarco continues Signature in the Schools’ tradition of bringing difficult subjects alive by connecting them to history, politics and literature.
