  The Last Night of Ballyhoo at TimeLine Theatre Company

The Last Night of Ballyhoo

TimeLine Theatre Company
615 W. Wellington Ave Chicago

Atlanta, 1939. Clark Gable and Gone with the Wind are the talk of the town, Hitler has invaded Poland, and the American South's party of the year is only days away. The Freitags-a Jewish family so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor-are obsessed with preparing for Ballyhoo, the lavish annual German-Jewish country club ball. Concerned with the pressures of societal appearances and expectations, young Lala is determined to make a unique splash at this year's event. But life turns upside down when her uncle brings home his new employee, a handsome bachelor from Brooklyn who begins to court Lala's charming cousin Sunny, home visiting from college. As romances blossom and obstacles arise, everyone must confront their own beliefs, prejudices, and desires in an effort to move forward.
