“Cardboard Piano is a play with great heart… rich, complex characters, humor and muscular writing.” -BroadwayWorld.com
Chris, the spirited daughter of an American missionary, falls head-over-heels in love with a local teenage girl in Northern Uganda. Late night on the eve of the millennium, they secretly meet in a church to exchange vows and plot their escape. But when the surrounding war zone encroaches on their fragile union, they cannot escape its reach. Confronting the religious and cultural roots of intolerance, Cardboard Piano explores violence and its aftermath, as well as the human capacity for hatred, forgiveness, and love.
International City Theatre’s Board of Directors and the Community Partnership invite you to a memorable evening. On Friday, May 4th 2018, join International City Theatre, the cast and director of Cardboard Piano, and other community leaders for the Opening Night Gala! Enjoy a fabulous pre-show dinner with wine, the West Coast Premiere performance of Cardboard Piano, and an exclusive after party with the actors!

“The semi-autobiographical play remains of interest not only for its own rich merits, but also because it marked William’s passage from obscure playwright to a major American voice.” –LA Times
A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre. The Glass Menagerie is a memory play by Tennessee Williams that premiered in 1944 and catapulted Williams from obscurity to fame. In the Wingfield apartment in St. Louis, the mother, Amanda, lives with her disabled daughter and her working son, Tom. The play has strong autobiographical elements, featuring characters based on Williams himself, his histrionic mother, and his mentally fragile sister.

“Thoughtful drama … worth taking seriously.” – Theatre Mania, NY
A gripping drama about war refugees haunted by the death of their loved ones — and by memories of the things they had to do to survive. It’s 1947 in San Francisco, home to a group of resettled Holocaust survivors from Poland whose very existence depended on blurring the lines between right and wrong. It is there we meet Rabbi Kroeller and a group of morally starved refugees as they seek to define their existence in this new tidy post-war America. How can these splintered souls adapt to a new life in a new land, where all the rules have changed?
