While soldiers fight abroad in WW2, those remaining in Westchester County strive to make a difference on the Homefront by creating Victory Gardens, supplementing limited food supply. But the pressures on the homefront extend much further than simply growing produce. A child worries her failing rooftop garden is an omen of misfortune for her father’s return from a POW camp. An infertile woman throws her purpose into feeding neighborhood families. A wealthy man whose chemical plant is commissioned by the government for war purposes struggles with how to leave a meaningful legacy not tainted with warfare. These stories, and more, are given light in The Victory Garden Plays, a series of vignettes exploring people’s journeys with their new realities of love, growth, life and death.

The performances feature Ava Pursel (2/17 & 3/3), Abigail Grizzle (3/9), Emma Kathryn, Ali Rose Harton, Alex Wade, Sharon Spenser, Rob Leonard, Steve Hoose (2/17 & 3/3), John Michael Hersey (3/9), Megan Benjamin, Audrey Casinelli, Ryan Sett, Stephanie Schwartz, and Betsy Walkup

The performance is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes long.
