Address Unknown

Stacks Image 1385244
Friendship. Love of country. Betrayal. The specter of fascism. Revenge.

These bold themes meld in the White Barn’s production of “Address Unknown,” a semi-staged reader’s theater presentation of the acclaimed 1938 novella by Kathrine Kressmann Taylor that continues to resonate in our troubled times. Accompanied by cello pieces performed by noted Napa Valley musician Jeffrey McFarland-Johnson.

Directed by David Garden Jr. and read by actors Michael Waterson and John Sullivan (left and right in photo above), “Address Unknown” shows over the course of a handful of letters how the bonds of friendship between two kindred spirits can be shattered when doctrinaire ideology prevails. Max, a Jewish art dealer in San Francisco, attempts to keep alive his warm rapport with Martin, his German business partner who has returned with his family to Germany just as the Third Reich is beginning its ominous rise. Their back-and-forth letters reveal how the lure of Nazism infects Martin and dooms the amity he once shared with Max.

Cellist McFarland-Johnson has chosen a number of short works by German composers Hanz Werner Henze and Paul Hindemith to underscore the drama of the storyline. Along with the actors and Garden’s visual realization, this riveting tale comes to life and promises to make for a thought-provoking evening, especially so in the midst of Easter and Passover celebrations.
