The play tells the true story of a well-to-do Jewish family headed by matriarch Margaret Welish. Fleeing Nazi persecution, Margaret took her family from Austria to the Philippines, only to have their life ripped apart again by the Japanese invasion. Using Margaret's 1981 diary and oral histories from her daughters, Infinite Variety Productions created a script showing that power and corruption can break apart an entire community, but love, family, and tradition can build a home anywhere. Performed at the Under St. Marks Theater, April–May 2019.
