Handing Down the Names (1995)
This epic new play by the award-Winning author of Lonely Planet traces the history of seven generations of a German family beginning in 1766. Seeking love, land and freedom of worship, the Dorns take an immigrant journey that spans two continents and 2OO years. From Catherine the Great to the teeming throngs of Ellis Island, the threads of a dream bind one generation to another, weaving a rich tapestry of endurance and hope.
