Largely told through correspondence, this sobering story follows Käthe Kollwitz, the famous painter, and her loved ones as they feel the brunt and burden of WWI and, eventually, WWII in Germany. A full cast makes this production that much more powerful; listeners hear the anguish and loss felt by Käthe and her family as they struggle to make sense of what seems to be endless wars. The cast members' strong emotional performances draw listeners in with their raw tone, pitched sadness, and accented voices. Sue Zizza's leadership as director produces some great audio mixing, including a well-aligned musical score and overlapping voices that enhance meaning within the story.
