Waiting for the Parade

Much like American women of the 1940′s, the women in Waiting for the Parade are united by their efforts to support the boys “over there.” Their wartime friendship deepens as they learn to smile, and sing, in the face of loss and loneliness. As the women experience highs and lows, confronting themselves as well as each other, the war at home becomes as real as the one in Europe. Waiting for the Parade is a play about humanity and camaraderie, as well as world war.
